CLAYTIVITY in schools

February/March special offer for schools in Squamish

$150/class of 30 students or less + $5 for each additional student

This year we offer a wide choice of projects to including projects from last year and more.

CLAYTIVITY gives students a unique 3-dimensional art experience in sculpting and shaping techniques. In one 60-90 minute class, students make a complete project with step by step instruction and demonstration. They also learn about the properties and uses of clay. Classes include a throwing demonstration on a potter’s wheel.

After the class, the projects are taken, dried in the CLAYTIVITY studio, fired in our kiln and returned to the school within 3 weeks.

School and Community Classes

CLAYTIVITY is a great activity for children and adults of all ages and abilities.

We provide the clay and everything needed for one to two hours of CLAYTIVITY.

Claytivity Class

Each step is carefully demonstrated. Then everyone gets just the right amount of clay and time to work on that part of their project.

We guide everyone through the process of making a complete project out of clay in two or three steps.

We’ll also bring a pottery wheel and give a throwing demonstration.

Afterwards, we take the projects away, fire them in our Kiln and return to you within 3 weeks.

Invite your group round again to paint their projects with you or collect to take home and paint!

Notice for CLAYTIVITY studio users

Do not enter the studio if you are sick or was in contact with someone who has COVID-19 symptoms within 14 days. Cancel or reschedule.

Sanitize hands before using the studio. Wash hands to remove clay when you have finished.

Wear a mask and keep 6 ft apart from other users. Work in your assigned work area.

We will limit the number of studio users to allow 6 feet between each person, or group from the same household.

We will give studio users their own work area, water, and clay.

Avoid touching other users’ clay, water and tools.

Clean and sanitize any shared tools before handing over to someone else.

Before leaving, dump unused or leftover clay in the used-clay container and your ‘clay-water’ into the bucket.

One person (Rosemary) will hand out tools, set up work areas, divide and distribute clay.

Do not touch clay and equipment while some one else is using the wheel.

Use your own water and container. After use, empty into the large clay-water bucket.

Tie back hair and remove scarves, wrist watch etc.

Turn off the electrical switch before cleaning.

After use, sanitize the wheel head and speed control switch (if the wheel has one) with sanitizing spray or wipes.
