Ceramics and Hand Building Camp

 Looking for a fun program to boost your child's creativity and hand building skills this winter break? 

Have your children learn about clay, glazes and the ceramics, and acquire basic hand building techniques and skills this summer. The program is led by an experienced ceramics tutor, and is designed to engage the young ones and guide them through how to design and build creatively with the material to create unique art pieces they take pride of. This camp will give them the basic knowledge they need enabling them to carry on with what they learned and expand their knowledge and skills set in the future. 

Our Winter Ceramics Camp welcomes our participants in creating functional objects, where they will each craft an object each day using different ceramic hand building techniques. All participant’s projects can be used at home or as a gift to family and friends.
