Headwaters Holds a Series of Teen Pottery Wheel Day Camps

Roll into summer with teen Pottery Wheel Camp! Headwaters Music and Arts holds its first ever Pottery Wheel Camps for teens, ages 13-18. With two options to choose from this summer, these seven session day camps are for teens who want to explore creating with clay on the wheel. Longtime Headwaters’ pottery instructor Tom Daly will lead this in-depth look at wheel throwing. Participants will dig into how to throw, different design and sculptural techniques, and glazing.

The first of these two camps will be held July 10-14, 12-3pm (with additional meetups July 20, 1-3pm & July 27, 2-3pm) and the second camp will be held couple weeks later July 31-Aug. 4, 12-3pm (with additional meetups Aug. 10, 1-3pm & Aug. 17, 2-3pm). The additional planned meetups will give participants a chance to glaze their fired bisqueware and then collect their final projects. Each camp will conclude with an ice cream party and social where participants will get to test their finished, wheel thrown, vessels. Teens are guaranteed to find camaraderie and leave feeling more comfortable with the wheel. All supplies provided.

The cost to attend either session of Pottery Wheel Camp is $185 per participant. Headwaters offers several scholarship and grant options for all of its youth programming in an effort to make their programming accessible for all.

Headwaters Music & Arts is an independent non-profit multidisciplinary organization whose mission is to provide opportunities for creativity through instruction and to inspire community through music and the arts. They offer a variety of summer camps for all ages.
