Shiloh Pottery has a large, well-equipped studio located on a farm in Carroll County. Your child will be doing many exciting clay projects such as: flower pots, log cabin bird houses, creature sculptures, dishes, trivets, masks, piggy banks, slab pots, cups, bowls, wind chimes, and Noah's arks with animals.

During the Kids' Clay Class, each child will get to "throw" on the potter's wheel at least once each class with assistance. Older children with more experience may choose to attend theWheel Class.

Children receive instruction on types of glazes and glaze their own pottery.
