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.
Clay Club 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, Clay Club provides a place for kids to come and have fun making things with clay. From functional pottery using the potter's wheel, hand-building and pottery painting, all options are covered. All students will have the chance to work on a potterʼs wheel during the 4 week session.
In this class, your child and the teacher will focus on different hand building clay techniques. They'll be guided through various elements of wheel spinning with help all the way through the class. Each class is carefully designed to allow for children to engage and develop skills whatever their ability. It is a great opportunity to develop creativity and build friendships in a supportive and safe environment.
Kids can also choose between collaborative and individual experiences and all
Endless Pottery Studio is mindful that childrenʼs time is often ﬁlled with pressure at school. Clay Club, 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: 8 years and over. All levels welcome.
**Please note: children must be mature enough to listen to teacher's instructions and work independently when requested.
All pieces will be fired at the end of the course to be collected a few weeks later. We do not have space to store students complete work.
**Please note; We will not be responsible for any pottery left at the studio 3 weeks after notification of collection has been sent.
