Please book in early so we can guarantee a place for your child.


Tuesdays:  Handbuilding with Clay

In this 3 hr workshop, the kids will receive a lump of clay and we will guide them with the basics of hand-building with clay.

You will learn how to pinch, coil or slab with clay to create anything from a bowl or an animal mug or just your own creations.

All your pieces will then be fired and glazed in a Clear glaze and remain white and glossy  (if you don’t wish to come back to a second-day workshop to paint your creations).  You can decide on the day whether you want to come back and paint your creation.

All pieces are to be collected from the studio in three to four weeks.

Choose between a 1 or 2-day workshop.

Day 1: During these classes, we guide the kids through the steps to make their very own hand-built creation from scratch… We will fire and glaze each piece, but if you don’t want to come back and paint your creation, this is where the art class will end for you. Total Cost $55

Day 2: Return 2 days after creating, leaving your clay to dry and harden before painting on it.  This is the art class where your kid’s piece will come to life. They can transform their clay creation into a pirate, a snake, or butterflies and roses. You’ll come back after clay has dried to paint, design, and decorate your creation.Cost $26.

For a One day workshop Handbuilding $55
