POTTERY & MULTI-MEDIA CAMP

HALF DAY CAMP - Monday to Friday

WEEK ONE: July 9 to 13, 2018
TIME: 9:00am to 12:00pm
FEES / WEEK: PDAC Members $120

AGE GROUP: Ages 7 - 13 years old.

LOCATION:
All classes are held at the Portage & District Arts Centre.

DESCRIPTION:
Campers will explore clay hand building techniques and experience the thrill of throwing a vessel on the potter’s wheel. They will also get a taste of hands-on “back-to-basic” skills, such as weaving and sewing, a demonstration on spinning raw wool, learning about the ancient techniques of batik fabric dying, and watch how to mill flour from grain. Time permitting - some lessons on edible wild plants, and how to grow your own sprouts.

INSTRUCTOR:
Gabriele Neuschwander is an experienced local potter, teaching this camp and pottery classes at PDAC for many years. Her works are in private collections throughout Canada and can also be found in the PDAC Gift Shop.
