About The Event
This session is suitable for children of Primary School age (4-11)
Please ensure only 1 adult attends per child, and every child attending the session needs a ticket (adults do not need a ticket). 3 tickets max per booking.
Why not book your child onto this session to make themselves a useable handless dimple cup/beaker to drink from.
During this 90 minute session (aprox) I will teach your child how to wedge clay, and it's importance. How to prepare the clay for throwing. I will then demonstrate how to throw a cup. I will guide you and your child throughout, step by step as a small group of up to 3 children and 3 adultS. Your child will then have the opportunity to throw their own cup, don’t worry if it goes a little wrong as they will be able to choose one from their best. All materials and firing are included. You will then have the chance to choose a glaze colour which I will apply to your fired bisque at a later date After the first firing.
Please note: I have 1 table top potters wheel, so they will all be using the same wheel so will be watching and supporting each other during the making. And keeping busy with their wedging. They will be using stonewear clay so their finished items are useable and dishwasher safe.
Finished ceramics will not be ready to collect until 3-4 weeks later. The making of ceramics is a process and time consuming.
Please ensure you wear suitable footwear and clothing to get mucky. Please remove rings beforehand if it is possible.
If you wish to book for a slightly lager group of children with fewer adults ie a group f 6 children and 2 adults, please message me for availability.
