Summer Pinch Coil & Slab Camp – 3 Days (6P3)

July 16 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm


3 Day Clay Summer Camp–Pinch Coil & Slab

Calling all young artists and aspiring potters! Join us for a 3-day pottery camp where creativity knows no bounds. Let your imagination run wild as you learn the basic techniques of hand buildingL including coiling, pinching and slab-building. Our skilled instructor will guide you every step of the way, ensuring that each project reflects your unique personality and style.

Our camps offer group and individualized instruction. With a new project created each day and a themed focus for the week, there’s endless inspiration waiting for you at every turn. So sign up the kiddos to come join us in our pottery studio for an unforgettable summer experience where creativity flourishes and memories are made.

Each project will measure approximately 4×4 and will be ready for pick up three weeks after camp ends, giving them a lasting reminder of their artistic achievements. Sign up now and let the magic of pottery unfold before their very eyes!

Additional Summer Camp Information:

Age Restrictions: We structure our camps by age in order to target our camper’s ability levels for each class. When their camp begins, children must be the minimum age requirement for their camp. In order to ensure the success and enjoyment of our Summer Camp classes, please observe the following guidelines when registering. Please check our updated policies located on our website here for any questions regarding our safety procedures.

Drop Off/Pick Up: for all wheel and glass workshops, check-in and check-out will take place at the main entrance.  For all other classes and workshops, check-in and check-out will take place at the entrance to the ICCGS STEAM Workshop (located on the 11th Avenue side), located next to the main studio inside the Cherry Building. Parents/adults must sign their child in and out of camp every day. Sign-in begins no more than 5 minutes before the start of camp. Please be punctual with all drop-offs and pick-ups, all campers should be picked up within 5 minutes after class ends. Please call the office at 319-365-9644 if you are delayed. Unless previously arranged, campers will not be released until the end of class. For the best creative experience, parents/adults are not allowed in the classroom studio space during class time. Parents are welcome to wait in the Cherry Building lobby until the end of class.

What to Wear and Bring: Clay may be messy, so make sure your child wears appropriate clothing and closed-toed shoes. Please make sure your child is wearing clothing that can be easily laundered. For wheel classes, long hair should be kept away from the face.  For glass workshops covered thighs are REQUIRED for safety. Food is prohibited in the studio but water bottles (with secure tops) are allowed. 

Cancellation Policy: ICCGS reserves the right to cancel sessions due to the minimum enrollment not being met. In that event, participants will be notified and refunds will be given.

Refunds and Transfers: Parents/Adults may cancel their child’s session for a full refund no later than one week (7 days) before the first day of class. A $15 processing fee is required to transfer from one camp to another (if space is available) 7 days prior to the start of camp. No refunds or transfers will be allowed with less than 7 day’s notice.

Completed Projects: Student’s work will be available for pickup exactly three weeks after the end of their session; we will NOT call or email you when items are ready for pickup. All summer camp projects left in the studio after September 5th, 2023 will be recycled.

Please note: when you pick up your child’s items, be sure to have the camp code with you (i.e. 1LA). The code is indicated on your emailed receipt.  Every child will have their own brown bag labeled with their camp code and first name. Having the camp code with you is necessary to correctly locate your child’s items, since there will be hundreds of bags. Before coming in, please check studio hours to ensure we are open.
