These practical, hands on classes are designed especially for families who are Home Educating to provide engaging, creative learning for children. They will learn to make everything from scratch themselves. Clay is a responsive, tactile material which enables children of any age and ability to learn skills and develop at their own pace. This versatile material can be used to deliver national curriculum subjects and themes. Clay is a natural and non toxic material. Used by cultures around the world for over 20,000 years!
Each workshop begins with a demonstration of how to – every session covers a different subject e.g; wheel throwing or slab technique. Next it’s over to you to get squidging and sculpting your ideas to life. Finish off your creations with a splash of coloured underglaze paints and leave the rest to me. I will glaze and fire your work, ready for collection about 4-6 weeks later.
