KIDS' CLASSES

As we continue to adapt and prepare Good Dirt LA to reopen gradually and safely to our wonderful community, we are constantly thinking of how to create opportunities for kids to stay engaged and creative at home!
We currently do not have any Online Kids Classes scheduled as we did earlier during the summer. However, we welcome interested children and families to check out our offering of Off-Site Private Wheel and Handbuilding Classes—let us come to you! Click HERE for more details about our Off-Site Private Classes and e-mail us at [email protected] today for booking.
We also still offer private online classes! E-mail us at [email protected] to book a private online gathering for your children and their friends to spend time and get creative together.

Kids Pottery Classes at Good Dirt LA

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

Q. How should my child prep for class?
A. They should arrive dressed in comfortable clothes and shoes. The clay that we use won’t leave permanent stains, but it’s best to pick out something that they (and you) don’t mind getting a little dirty. If your child or teen has long hair, make sure he/she brings an elastic band to pull it back. Also, trimmed nails are ideal for handling clay.

Q. Will their pieces be safe to eat on and drink out of once complete?
A. Yes! We only use health-approved clay and glaze materials.

Q. When will my child’s artwork be ready?
A. All work goes through two kiln firings. The first is a bisque firing. The second is a glaze firing, making the pottery safe for food and drinks. Because of this long process, the students’ work will take approximately three weeks before they’ll ready to be picked up.

Q. What happens if my child’s artwork gets damaged at the studio?
A. Unfortunately, due to the nature of clay, things happen during the drying process and/or in the kiln that are beyond our control. We care very much about your children’s work and if it becomes damaged, we’ll try our best to fix it. However, we make no guarantees that the item will be restored.

Q. What happens to my child’s pieces if we forget to pick them up?
A. We hold onto artwork for 45 days. After that point, they’ll be given to charity. Thank you for understanding, as we have limited storage space!
