Clay Kids and Teens

Clay Kids and Teens After School Classes

Full-Circle Pottery offers classes for Clay Kids 8-11 (Tuesdays) and Teens 12+ (Wednesdays, Mondays) from 4-5:45 most months.  Wheel throwing and hand building instruction are provided on our shady outdoor patio or in our well-ventilated indoor studio.  

Price ($175) includes instruction, clay, firings, and glaze.

Missed Class Policy: We will be working with wet clay during the first three weeks of class, then carefully drying it to the right texture for trimming and finishing in week three.  BECAUSE OF THIS WE ARE UNABLE TO OFFER MAKE UP CLASSES FOR THE FIRST THREE WEEKS.  You are able to reschedule the fourth class (glazing) to a glazing session in a future Clay Kids or Teens class.

Cancellation Policy: Cancel your order within 48 hours of booking and receive a 100% refund. Tuition is 50% refundable if you contact us at least one week before the class/camp has started.

COVID update: the studio will refund students if scheduled classes that haven’t started have been cancelled due to the outbreak.  We will prorate refund or arrange follow up sessions for classes that have already started.
