Pottery Training for Summer Camp Counselors at TC Arts Council
The Transylvania Community Arts Council in Brevard will be offering pottery training for camp counselors who will be working in or running the Pottery Programs at local summer camps. The course will run over two mornings, June 6 and June 8, and will focus on: the organization and set up of a studio for the summer, loading, unloading and firing a kiln, suitable hand building techniques and projects for children and an introduction to the wheel.
On June 6 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. the participants will learn hand building skills that they can then teach to campers at their respective summer camps. During the June 8 workshop from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m. participants will learn how to load and unload a kiln, how to fire a kiln, as well as how to set up your pottery studio.
The cost for both workshops is $100 per person. One workshop is $50 per person. To register call TC Arts Council at (828) 884-2787. The TC Arts Council is located at 349 S. Caldwell Street in Brevard, NC. To learn more about the TC Arts Council go to www.tcarts.org.
