This class will be aimed at school aged children (5yrs+) and ages will be grouped together within the class.

Time: 10am-11.30am (1.5hrs)

Cost: $28pp

Dates: 9th or 10th July, 2020

Studio Location: 11 Dandaloo St, The Gap 4061

Includes all materials, equipment and kiln firing. 

In this class children are free to make whatever they like with 500gms of natural Australian clay. Clay type can vary from white to terracotta depending on what is most appropriate for their project. I will give them inspiration and guidance throughout the class.


Their work will dry over a week (depending on weather) and then be kiln fired once to 1000 degrees. Please allow approx 3 weeks for this process. When collecting your work you will receive an acrylic painting kit to further decorate your piece at home. You are welcome to drop your work back at anytime after decorating, for a gloss sealer coat to be be applied. This coating is not essential but can accentuate and lock in the colour of the acrylic paint as well as help preserve the painted surface over the years.

Please Note: This will be a decorative piece only. Not suited to food or dishwasher use. All materials are non-toxic.

Examples of what they could make are; hanging wall art, model a small sculpture eg. their pet, make an outdoor planter, make a decorative plate or pinch pot bowl to put jewelry in.

Children are to bring own snack and water bottle. No nuts please.

Toilets are available right next to the studio. Residential on street parking.

Children will be spaced out, hand sanitizer applied upon arrival. Most tools are unshared, but where they are, I have anti-bac wipes to apply between students. All surfaces are wiped down with disinfectant and all apron, towels are machine washed and dried in dyer to kill any germs. Toilets, basin and door handles are also cleaned before each class.

If your child is unwell please do not come to this class. I am currently waiving cancellation fees so if your child is unwell they can have a full refund. See Terms & Conditions here.

Parents are welcome to come into the studio after class has finished to see their child's work (max 2 parents at a time please). Please adhere to social distancing whilst in the studio.
