Christmas Pottery for Kids
Children's Pottery Workshop!
Christmas theme. Limited spaces.
Do you have creative little fingers at home that might like to try something new?
Think your children might like to create handmade ceramics that they can hang on the tree of gift to the someone special?
In this workshop your children will spend 1.5 hours learning some basic techniques of playing and making with clay!
A fun, sensory experience for children that has added calming and therapeutic benefits.
We will spend the workshop learning how to use and mould clay and then have a go at making some simple bowls, sculptures and of course, Christmas ornaments!
The session will be capped in size to ensure each student can receive one on one support.
By the end of the workshop your child will have created at least 1-2 Christmas ornaments and 1 larger pinch pot (depending on what sizes they create). Your child will have an opportunity to decorate the pieces with underglaze paints. Pieces will then be taken away to be fired, and then finished with a clear glaze.
Finished pieces will be available for pick up approx. 2 weeks later after they have been fired. Pick up is from the venue. Please only book this class if you are able to collect the finished pieces afterwards. Pottery must be collected within 3 weeks of being fired. Pottery will be fired prior to Christmas so you can hang the ornaments on the tree.
All materials provided, but please bring along an apron if you have one and clothes that get can dirty!
Bookings are limited.
Duration: 1.5 hours.
