Looking for something new and fun to do with your Scout Troop? Firehouse Pottery & Arts offers several programs for scouts or bring your troop in just for a fun, team building afternoon of painting pottery. Come paint at Firehouse Pottery and earn a FHP & Arts Fun Patch!
Potter Badge – Scouts learn the basics of hand building with clay. They will discuss properties of clay and the glazing process. They will use stamps, paint, and other techniques to decorate their tiles and pinch pots. We will learn about wedging, make a pinch pot and coil pot. Glaze your projects. Tour the kiln room where we will fire you projects and tell you about how the process works. 1 ½ hours – $15 per scout
Art Belt Loop – Scouts will talk about different artists and occupations in the art field. We will then learn about primary and secondary colors and see what happens when you combine colors. We will sculpt a small clay project and will wrap up by constructing a project for you to take home. 1 ½ hours – $17 per scout
