MudFire Minis CAmp
Camp Registration opens in February each year. Register early - spots fill up fast! We offer multiple sessions separated by age group.
Our age groupings are 10-14, 8-12, and 5-8 years. If your child is between or siblings are coming together please email us and we'll advise which group for your children to attend. * We will accept 4 year olds in the 5-8 group if the parent feels they would be comfortable attending.
Let your little artist shine! Each week we'll explore fun and focused projects and play in the clay - all led by experienced educators. Learn new techniques, make new friends and flex those creative muscles! Projects may include zombie seed bombs, planters, animal masks, totems, cupcakes, boxes and more. A creative mind is a strong mind! Each week, visiting artists will stop by to share their love of art making. We'll also tour the gallery and studio and show everyone the behind the scenes action.
All camp participants will get to use the wheel with the aid of our hands on instructors - we limit camp to 18 participants with 2-4 instructors per day depending on activity level and class size. All camps include time for a snack break - being creative is hard work - we do have some backup snacks but we ask that each child bring a snack where possible to prevent sharing/allergy issues. As you purchase camp there will be a pop up form for important contact, allergy, and emergency information.
All the Details! Our half day camp runs from 9am to 12noon. Need to drop off early? Doors open at 8:45am - if you need to arrange that for an earlier time, just let us know. Have more than one mini? Call us to get a 10% discount on sibling registrations - we'll give you a coupon code to use online. Need to cancel a registration? Cancellations made seven (7) days in advance will receive a 75% refund. Sorry, no refunds for cancellations made less than seven (7) days prior to the start of camp. You can re-schedule to a later session, provided there's room.

Time for Summer Camp at MudFire Pottery Studio. Registration is open now - spots will fill quickly. If the spot you need is taken please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to be added to the wait list.
Camp runs from 9am - 12pm Monday through Friday. Children will experience hand-building and wheel throwing on the pottery wheel during our camp. Average of 8-12 projects will be completed although firing will take an additional few weeks especially if we have a wet summer.
Instructors will arrive between 8:30 and 8:45 for earlier drop off. If you are registering siblings - please call us for a sibling coupon code 404-377-8033 or email email@example.com.
Campers will work with their instructors to create imaginative projects utilizing color, texture, and design. Projects will take 1-3 weeks on average to be picked up after firing. Weather and a damp summer makes for longer turnaround times. We do our best to send kids home with something when we can. Our instructors normally spend their time working in clay themselves and also teaching adults at our studio.
Most projects will be glazed using underglaze and clear glaze. Occasionally we will paint a project with craft paint on the last day if we have been able to fire during the week. Most items will be functional if your child made them with that intent in mind.
For wheel days - generally Tuesday and Wednesday - please dress to come home dirty - some parents include a change of clothing to ride back in the car or send kids with a towel or apron.
