Kids Ceramic and Woodworking Spring Camp • Geneva
Pottery and woodworking are two creative experiences for teenagers to express themselves and develop new skills.
Pottery involves various techniques like wheel-throwing, and various hand-building techniques, where teens can improve their hand-eye coordination, patience, and imagination.
Woodworking, on the other hand, provides opportunities for teens to design and create practical and beautiful pieces with wood, building problem-solving and technical skills.
Both offer hands-on, fulfilling experiences for teenagers to explore their artistic talents and build confidence. This collaborative camp is co-created by Knock On Wood and Klayit.
