Classes for Seniors

We can bring our pottery studio to your senior facility.

Arts and crafts activities have been shown to improve motor skills, build self-confidence, and to promote emotional well being.

We will bring all of the materials needed: ceramic pieces, paints, brushes, stamps, etc. After creating with clay or painting, we will bring the art work back to our studio for glazing and firing. Once fired, all the items will have a shiny finish and are food safe. They will be delivered back to your facility within a week. There is a $25 fee for classes held outside of our studio.
