Ancient Greek Pottery: Creating an Amphora (Ages 12-14)

It's hard to imagine the Greeks without amphorae. These large containers were used for everything from transporting wine and olive oil to using as funerary urns. Students will learn clay hand-building as well as sgrafitto in making their own Amphora during this one-week crash course in ancient Greek pottery-making!

Special Notes

  • Students may go outside in the neighborhood for walks. Students will use clay that needs to be fired, so work will be picked up at a later date.

    This is an On-site course. Students must follow current CDC + VDH guidance outlined on our website:
