Pottery for Homeschoolers is specifically designed to meet the needs of home-schooled children. The course is centred on task based learning, allowing children the opportunity to develop hand building and throwing projects based around their interests.
The course aims include fostering an understanding of all the skills of working with clay, not only the actual making and glazing processes, but also the importance of good studio practice, learning about risk assessing and maintaining best practice, including tidying up and taking responsibility for their work. Children will learn and help with technical processes such as recycling and wedging clay as well as firing their work to foster an understanding of the entire discipline.
Falling under the Create in Clay umbrella, this course is at the core of the Kite Studios’ ethos and perfectly encapsulates our belief that creativity and confidence are sustained and moulded greatly through the sense of touch.
