Get your hands into wheel throwing! Campers of all skill levels welcome. The class will cover wedging, centering, pulling,
trimming, use of tools and surface techniques. Campers should wear old clothes because work on the potter's wheel can
get messy (wah-hoo!). If you have taken this camp with Ms. Gretchen...come back and get on the wheel again and practice!
The wheel is like life...it is not about the destination, but the journey. Please remember that finished work will need to dry and
then go through the firing process. Allow 10 days from the last day of camp for picking up work, thank you.

Day 1: Before we begin to whirl around, campers will learn the history of the potter's wheel and why it was used + then get centered.
Day 2: Campers will continue the journey on the wheel making a summer time snack bowl.
Day 3: Don't flip out, flip over! Today campers will learn the techniques to trim the bottoms of their bowls. 
Day 4: Up, up and away. Campers learn how to pull clay on the wheel to achieve height from their work.
Day 5: Getting to know glaze. Learn about glaze and have a painting party on our last day of camp.

  Healthy Start Healthy Heart Baking Low Sugar Baking Camp with Ms. Gretchen - camp is full
1
:00 - 3:00PM | | Ages 7 - up | $1000 + $15 materials
Camp participants: Minimum 5. Maximum of 10.
RSVP | Gretchen (941) 518 - 2109 | Come to the morning camp, pack a lunch and stay + play!

Baking is a wonderful way to spark a lifelong love of the kitchen in your children. It teaches kids about the processes of
cooking: following a recipe, measuring, combining ingredients and applying heat to create a wonderful transformation.
It's messy (and therefore fun!) and the results are hard to resist. Baking often requires lots of sugar and these days sugar is in
everything!  Sugar is used to cover up the taste of high sodium, preservatives, and chemicals.  Our cereal and snack bars are
laden with sugar. So I thought we would bake with low sugar and no sugar recipes and teach PAC bakers how
we can substitute delicious wholesome foods for the sugar fest that often happens in our culture of baking. Here is what is on the
menu this week... No sugar homemade strawberry & peach muffins - all in one bowl! We will throw a curve ball at our bakers and
add beet puree too - turning Greek yogurt into hot pink icing. We will learn to use the piping tool too.  Home made apple sauce to
use as a substitute for No Sugar Oatmeal Cookies! Flour Power. Let's make hot cakes using two types of flours : whole wheat and
rice flour and see which one wins our taste test. Using fruit in season we will make a home made syrup (no sugar added).
Need a healthy grab and go breakfast? Soft and Chewy No Sugar Breakfast Bars (nut-free too).
