About the Event

Come and spend a couple of hours bonding with one of your favourite young people, exploring a new tactile craft that you may not have had the opportunity to experience.

Easter had come and gone – but eggs are a thing all year round. A cute personalised egg cup may entice a reluctant eater to dig in! Homemade pottery is beautiful and makes an excellent eco-friendly addition to your house – or a lovely gift for a friend. Children especially love the physical-sensual-mental experience of squeezing, pinching and shaping a piece of wet clay into something funny, interesting or aesthetically pleasing. It is a gentle, eco-friendly, grounding, calming, and inspiring process.

Tanja will help participants in this beginner-level workshop gain a feel for the clay, create a simple egg cup, and personalise it. Each piece is unique, and the time spent making it as a team with your hands will leave you with treasured memories.

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.

This workshop will take place in our brand-new clay play space near the milk vending shed.

Limited to 7 adult-child pairs (total of 14 participants). Payment of $29 is per adult-child pair. Bookings are essential. Bookings close Friday, 24th May at 2pm.

This workshop is proudly sponsored by the Riverside Community Trust. Please contact Tanja (at education@riverside.org.nz) for workshop questions or to ask about sponsorship options.
