Workshops


Creative and Educational

JumpingClay USA offers a wide range of programs to fit every situation. While the possibilities are endless, we've developed several themed workshops to help get you started.  Most workshops are one hour of step-by-step modeling with instruction and assistance from our trained instructors. While our workshops provide structured content there is lots of room for creativity as each craft ends up being unique and we encourage everyone to make it their own.

Goals of the programs:

  • learn about basic forms and shapes and color mixing
  • build confidence, self-discipline, and encourage creative self-expression
  • help develop fine-motor skills and hand-eye coordination
  • enrich, stimulate and improve concentration
  • hands-on experimentation and collaborative working among peers
  • have fun learning through play

Workshops are typically one fun-filled hour led by trained JumpingClay instructors. All materials are included in the price and there is no need to fire or bake it afterwards; simply take it home that very day. Themes change monthly and vary depending on seasons and holidays. Here are a few of our standard workshops:

ONE-HOUR WORKSHOPS

Our most common and popular workshops!  We recommend ages 4+ (this includes adults - we love to have you join the crafting!)  One hour workshops often follow holidays or seasonal themes and are run by trained instructors. Workshops teach basic color mixing, shaping, and attaching to create your own unique masterpiece!  Since there is no need to bake, you can take your craft home the very same day!   We do advise calling ahead for reservations as we have a maximum of 10 participants per class.

Pre-School Workshops

Moms and Dads... Want to get out of the house and do something with your toddler or preschooler? We can help! Come to JumpingClay for a wide range of activities designed for younger crafters. Let's be honest . . . you might do a lot of the work, but your little ones will love the craft that they helped make!  We recommend ages 2-5, but welcome older siblings too!  We do advise calling ahead for reservations as we have a maximum of 10 participants per class.

bIGGER PROJECTS AND dISPLAY wORKSHOPS

These workshops are either 1.5 hour workshops or meet for consecutive days/weeks to complete a bigger project.  Bigger projects include picture frames, ornaments, or jewelry.  Displays are based on themes such as Polar, coral reef, farm, or camping just to name a few!  Participants build a 3-D landscape and then add animals and details to make their very own unique scene! Reservations are required.

Courses

JumpingClay USA's Courses meet for consecutive days or one day every week for 4-6 weeks.  Our progressive courses are based on the basic shapes and step by step modeling guides. Lesson objectives range from the easy stuff for the younger ones like rolling a ball (learning shapes, developing coordination and motor skills) and simple shapes, to more elaborate themes like oceans and space for the older kids where we’ll build a whole display while learning about the topic.

Events

Invite JumpingClay USA to your next event or maybe we'll see you out!  We offer mini workshops and demonstrations at events such as fairs, craft shows, grand openings, kick-offs, and company picnics or parties.  Let us add a creative and child-friendly element to your big bash.
