Overview of the Ceramic Process
This is a YouTube Playlist which includes several brief videos that demonstrate the ceramic process from Wedging to Glaze Firing. The length is approximately 18 minutes. The link to the playlist is: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLik0ME7bTBFPNHRiIDtwQRykIijmgnMDE.
What you need: A computer or TV that will stream YouTube. Optional: Various pottery dishes, vases, sculptures, etc.
Allow time after the presentation for the kids to ask questions. When I watched this series of videos with a group of kids recently, they were very interested and they (and their parents) asked lots of great questions! They wanted to handle the pottery, too. You may want to ask them a few questions about the process reviewed in the videos to reinforce some of the main ideas.
