Bitterroot Pottery:
Where Kids Mold Clay Into Art

Three years ago my daughter attended a birthday party for one the boys in her class at Bitterroot Pottery. Since then, she’s been a big fan of this very cool pottery place for kids and adults.

My daughter has been a regular at both Spring Break and Summer Campsat Bitterroot Pottery and she’ll be there again this summer. Kids from age 5 and up can attend camp or classes, working with clay by hand and on the pottery wheel to create real pieces of pottery. The staff are friendly and helpful . Boys and girls who have never worked on a wheel before feel like experts by the end of the week. The camps and classes offer kids a chance to experiment with this unique art form.
