Children's Programs

NATURE-BASED CERAMIC CLASSES AT GREEN BRIAR

Three different nature-based ceramic classes will be conducted by Deborah Martin at the Green Briar Nature Center in East Sandwich in the coming months.  Two are listed in the Family Programs page and one is children only. Each class offers an opportunity for creating your own unique designs in clay without the standard mold-it format.  Instructor will then fire your designs and return them to the second class for you to brush on colorful and clear glaze.  The final firing will be done and your completed project brought back to Green Briar for pick up the following week.  For registration details on the following, call 508-888-6870.


An Autumn Flower Bowl Workshop for children ages 7 and up is scheduled on Fridays, November 3 and November 17 from 4:00pm to 5:30pm.  This child only class provides materials to create your own unique flower bowl to use as a holiday serving dish or to give as a special holiday gift.  Completed projects will be available for pickup on November 21.  The cost for this 2 session workshop is $50.
