Discover the joy of spending quality time with the young ones in your life this school holiday at our eco-friendly workshop. Join us for a couple of hours of bonding and explore the wonderful world of tactile crafts.

As spring brings thoughts of seedlings and plants, what better way to showcase your green thumb than with unique, homemade clay plant pots? These charming creations not only make a great addition to your home but also serve as thoughtful eco-friendly gifts for loved ones.

Children, in particular, revel in the physical, sensory, and mental experience of molding wet clay with their own hands. Squeezing, pinching, and shaping the clay allows their imaginations to run wild as they create funny, interesting, or beautiful designs. This gentle, hands-on process not only stimulates and inspires but brings a sense of grounding and calmness.

Please be aware that this session is a fully immersive, hands-on experience that may get a little messy. Dress yourself and your children accordingly, as clay stains may not wash out of all fabrics.

If you wish to have your artwork fired, please note that it cannot be taken home on the same day. Finished pieces may take up to a month before they are ready for collection. Book your spot today and embrace the eco-friendly joy of creating with clay.

Limited to 10 adult-child pairs. $35 per pair. Book Now
