POTTERY

WHEEL CAMP

FOR TEENS

(12 - 17 years old)

Where to come:
(S014A) in the Sarto Desnoyers Community Centre, 1335 Lakeshore Road, Dorval. Look for the outside door to the studio near the bike rack on the south west corner.

When to come:
Monday, Clay talk starts at 9h or 13h so arrive a little early to choose a wheel and an apron.

What to wear:
  • old running shoes so your toes stay safe
  • short sleeves so you don't need to be rolling them up
  • no skirts
  • many potters work in shorts but I prefer to keep my legs covered and clean
  • tidy hair so when you lean over the clay it doesn't block your vision or tangle with the clay
  • remove your rings - the clay will sandblast them
