Description

Children at play need a variety of tactile experiences to learn about the complexity and richness of information the world has to offer. In this ever more technologically focused world, it is easy for kids to miss out and to gravitate towards a virtual reality.

Our After-School Pottery & Art Program can help you bring them back down to earth (yeah, we know, bad pun!) by offering pottery lessons providing a messy, muddy alternative for kids to express themselves. Open ended and exploratory in nature, Endless Pottery & Craft Studio provides a place for kids to come and have fun making things with clay. From fun to functional pottery by hand-building using earthenware clay and art using various tools. Kids can also choose between collaborative and individual experiences and all pieces will be fired at the end of the course to be collected a few weeks later.

Endless Pottery & Craft Studio teachers are mindful that childrenʼs time is often filled with pressure at school. Our program, therefore is not about producing products to take home to parents – although they certainly will! Rather, the focus is on the experience of experimenting and playing with a plastic, responsive material that can be manipulated in many varying, exciting and often quite personal ways.

The fee is inclusive of materials and firing.

Age: 7 years and over. All levels welcome.

Please note: children must be mature enough to listen to teacher's instructions and work independently when requested. 

This class will run for 1.5-hour sessions on Wednesdays 4.00pm - 5.30pm. Teacher: Doris Wade*

*Doris is an experienced teacher and started her journey into the rich world of ceramics at Island Pottery twenty six years ago. She is patient and caring and has a warm and friendly manner with children.
