Ages 7-9
With Kristen Parke

Campers will expand their imaginations while accomplishing lasting works of clay, both sculptural and functional. They will learn to work independently and collaboratively in a small class setting with plenty of individual instruction. This camp focuses on many ceramic hand-building techniques—leaving plenty of room for exploration and decoration. Each camper can expect to create and glaze 5-10 ceramic projects in the duration of this camp. The 3 hour, half-day camp will include a short break for snacks provided by parents or caregivers.

Camp begins at 9:00AM each day from July 9-13.

Unfortunately, we cannot make exceptions to the published age restrictions.

(We also offer a clay camp for students ages 10-12 - you can sign up here!)

Project Pick-Up
Completed projects may be picked up two weeks after your camp ends; we will NOT call you when they are ready. We strongly recommend that you bring your child with you to help identify what s/he made. Projects left more than 4 weeks after the camp ends will be discarded. If you cannot pick up your child’s projects by this date, please make arrangements for someone else to pick them up.

Class Content/Schedule
Students can expect to make new work Monday through Thursday and spend Friday glazing. Class periods will include time for clean-up, an integral part of the process.

Other Information
Please Note: Due to the very nature of clay and the firing process, Make Nashville cannot be responsible for any damage to work caused by poor construction or the firing or glazing processes (However, we will work with students to avoid these mistakes as much as possible!)

Small Class Size
Clay Camp has a limit of 12 students, so register now!

Camper Information
Once we have received your registration, we will send you a link where we will ask for a little more information about the camper(s) who will be attending, including any allergies and emergency contact information.

Pick-up and Drop-off
If you need early drop-off (8:00AM) for your student, please select that option when you register.
Plan to pick your camper up at 12:00PM, unless they are staying for the afternoon camp session.

Snack and Lunch Breaks
Campers take a short snack break during the morning session, so please pack a snack for your child and label it with their name.

If your child will will be attending both Clay Camp and the afternoon camp session, please pack a lunch for them. The lunch break will be from 12PM-1PM. Afternoon camp begins at 1PM.
