4-Week Kids Clay Class

You’ve been asking about it... and we’re finally doing it! TBD/LYM are ready to offer a KIDS CLAY CLASS! This four-week course, specifically for kids ages 7-12, is geared towards any kiddos looking to experience various aspects of clay making. Our young artists will start off learning the basics of working with clay, experience manipulating clay with hand-building techniques; and then move on to classes where they can work on centering, pulling, and creating cool things at the wheel. 

We plan to spend 1-2 classes handbuilding, two classes at the wheel and the final class may be a hybrid to allow our kiddos to finish up their projects or work on what they are more interested in. Each class will be approximately two hours, which includes instruction, demonstration, and some important clean-up time; but the majority of the time spent will be supporting your little artists to do their thing! Whether you want your creative kids to try a new art form, improve on their past experience with clay, or just have fun and enjoy the therapeutic aspects of playing with clay, this class is a great opportunity for them to learn and let their imaginations run free. We have rules about working with clay and how to work in a shared pottery studio together, but we also just want this class to be a fun, creative experience for them to create silly creatures for your home garden or proudly carry home their new mug they can drink juice from! We’ve seen the kids come up with the wildest things and we cannot wait to see what they can help us create in this special space.

One requirement for this class is that each participant must have previously joined us at an OPEN CLAY (either from an Artwalk Friday or our Saturday Open Clay). This ensures that they have the capacity to focus and learn during the 1.5-hour long class each week. Please feel free to message me at loveyaahmore@gmail.com or DM me on Instagram @loveyaahmore if you have any questions about this.

The four-week course is $175 for one participant. If you have multiple kiddos who would like to participate, we offer $30 off for a second child (so $320 for two children for all four weeks).

As much as this class is about teaching our young artists about clay, we also have so much to learn from their young minds and experience as well! Since this is our first time trying out this hybrid kid class, we ask for your patience and kind feedback as you help us grow this class into something wonderful together.

Please note that this class takes place at our other art studio on Sonoma Blvd.
