Ceramics Days

The Children’s Museum’s commitment to STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art & Math) has brought the Framed exhibit to our museum. Now, we’ll have a special day devoted to the art and science of ceramics!

Learn about the the properties of pottery, the minerals in glazes, and how a kiln works care of specialists from The Claypen.

And get ready to try ceramics experiments with magnets, conductivity and buoyancy. Plus: see a small object float in midair, thanks to a special ceramic and superconductivity!

The Claypen will also have ceramic figures for sale that you can paint yourself. (Cost varies by item, and can be picked up after being glazed at The Claypen’s location in West Hartford Center.)
