Brownie Potter Badge Workshop

Regular price $150.00

Brownies can earn their Potter Badge as part of the "It's Your Planet" path.  This two session workshops, (totaling 4 hours) follows all of the  requirements. Girls will learn about the process of how clay becomes ceramic. From set up to clean up, they will get to know clay! They will explore slab, coil, and pinch pot techniques and create original works of art.


Dates are available after school and weekends starting in April. Must book a minimum15 days in advance. As a first step, use the contact page to discuss possible dates you would like to attend. The two sessions must be 1 week apart due to the firing process. Your event maybe be rescheduled contingent on weather or current Covid-19 protocols. We will make every effort to accommodate your group by finding  dates that works. This workshop is taught outdoors at Sara Hunsucker's Studio. Parents and leaders are encouraged to help the girls. 


There is a non-refundable deposit of $150.00 due at booking that goes toward your troop's fees.  Reach out first about dates before you pay the deposit. After your date is confirmed and you have a total headcount of girls participating, you can pay your balance. The fee is $38.00 per girl and covers clay, glaze, tools use, firing costs and the Potter Badge itself. There is a minimum of 8 girls, a maximum of 15 required.

Sara Hunsucker is certified Brownie co-leader in Easton, CT and former Education manager at the American Museum of Ceramic Art.


Lots of things can happen in the kiln and ceramic is fragile.  We make every effort to ensure success for each girl participating.  Sometimes things happen like an air bubble gets trapped in the clay and it will trap moisture that combusts in the kiln. If this happens to one of the girl's projects, we can try to help her fix it but we can't ensure make-up opportunities. As part of the education of this program I will go over possible hazards of construction.  If you have any questions, please reach out.
