Available for children from 5 years old.
They poke it, squeeze it, hit it, pick it up and so on.
Each time they act on the clay, the clay adjusts and responds.
These changes in the clay are magical.
The child is naturally fascinated, motivated, and empowered to keep experimenting.
We will focus on enjoying the process of hand making.
Pottery is a very calming experience for children.
It is also great fun to do it in a group.
The children’s sense of creativity and imagination seems to unfurl, as they
create what can sometimes be very surprising designs.

Parties run for approximately 2.5 hours and include an hour of clay modeling and an hour of painting on ceramic plates. The birthday person will also get a personalised plate painted on by all the party guests as a little reminder of their special day.
1. Painting on plates - first session
Each person will be given a bisque fired plate ( each plate will be made by me and fired once to 1000 deg C) for painting with underglazes. Plates stay with me for clear glazing and the second firing.
Please provide me with a list of names for all guests min 10 days before the party so I can imprint names on plates.
2. A break for a cake and snacks.
Please note that food and drinks are BYO. You need to provide disposable plates, cups, tablecloth, rubbish bags etc. It is usually done outside of my studio if weather permits.
3. Clay modeling - second session
After a short presentation of hand building methods, each person will be given a white earthenware clay and tools. I will help students to achieve “ fireable” pieces.
The birthday person chooses the project that the group will make. Please provide me with the project theme before the party.
Min number of guests 6, max 14.
Aprons are available in the studio.
