Queer Social Moorabbin: Cheeky Clay Ornaments with Maddy
Come and explore the hands-on fun of pottery and clay modelling!
In this workshop we'll work with embossing sheets and elements to create fun textures in our ornaments. We'll also have golden and silver foil, lettering, ribbons... we'll also have a huge amount of cheeky fun quotes and ideas!
Join us and make a customised festive ornament for yourself or a loved one.
