Ahoy Mateys! Hop on board our pirate ship and join the crew! This week, we craft a variety of ceramic pieces that find inspiration from a pirate’s life at sea. We begin by mixing squishy clay between our toes and learning a pirate’s jig, then we take time to create clay grog mugs and bone soup bowls. We also make our very own pirate necklaces and sculpt a parrot friend! When our clay creations head off to the kiln, we must prepare to hoist our Jolly Roger flags and have fun tie-dyeing do-rags! Oh, the wild things we will discover while on the ocean blue!
