Service Description

$135 for all three classes 7/11, 7/18 & 8/1 $90 for two classes 7/18 & 8/1 This Pottery Badge Program meets for a total of 8-9 hours and includes a wheel component. Scouts meet three times at the studio; two consecutive Thursdays, a week off so work can be fired and a return the following week. Younger scouts of smaller stature are not able to work on the wheel. We usually require our youth in the 12-13 years of age, of larger stature and this is for safety reasons. If the Scout is not taking the first wheel class component, not a problem, they can start on July 18 with the hand building component and the cost is $90 and they still earn their pottery badge. The first session is education on the pottery wheel and wheel throwing with Counselor Cathleen Sullivan (July 11, 2 1/2 hours). The second session on 8/18, Scouts switch gears to the hand-building end of pottery by creating several hand-built pottery pieces with Counselor Zoey Bridges (2 1/2-3 hours). Scouts return on August 1st to paint and glaze their work (2-2 1/2 hours) and further education about kiln firings, and anything not covered in the previous one-two sessions. This program includes all education, clay, glazes, and two firings. Troop Leaders, kindly call Cathleen Sullivan at 772-237-5638 to discuss. As a reference, please feel free to contact Kathleen Remsen, Treasure Coast District Volunteer, kremsen.bsa@gmail.com, 631-513-9879. The full course with the wheel component is $135. For those Scouts that will NOT attend the first wheel class, they would start on 8/18 and the cost is $90. This model program we ran successfully this past March and Scouts earned their Pottery Badge. For the wheel component to run, we need a minimum of 6 Scouts/maximum of 9. However, we can have up to 12 Scouts registered for the hand-building portion.
