About the Event
Here is a unique opportunity for you to spend a couple of hours bonding with one of your favourite young people, exploring a new tactile craft you may not have had the opportunity to experience.
Children especially love the physical-sensual-mental experience of squeezing, pinching, and shaping a piece of wet clay into something funny, interesting, or beautiful. It is such a gentle process that is grounding, calming as well as stimulating, and inspiring.
Tanja will help participants in this beginner-level workshop to gain a feel for the clay, create a simple creature and personalise it. Each piece is unique, and the time spent making it as a team with your own hands will leave you with treasured memories. You can freeform a creature of your own invention, or, if you are stuck for ideas, follow a step-by-step process that leads you to a 4-legged beast.
This session is creative, 100% hands-on and potentially a bit messy – please dress (yourself and your children) accordingly :) Clay stains may not wash out of some fabrics.
Please note that if you would like your work fired, you will not be able to take it home on the day, and it may take up to a month before you can pick up your finished piece. Unfired work does keep but cannot get wet and is relatively fragile.
Limited to 10 participants. Bookings essential.
This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at email@example.com) for any workshop questions or to discuss sponsorship options if you are struggling to meet the workshop fee.
