Pinch Pot party ~ For children
Guests will create a pinch pot and decorate it with coloured slip. A great alternative to pottery painting which allows to make something completely of their own devising.
You and your guests will be guided through how to make something with clay completely with scratch and have the chance to decorate it with bright colours!
Join me for an hour and a half of clay based fun time. This workshop / party is designed for a child 7+ to work on making a small pot, it is a guided session so I will take them through all of the necessary steps. They also have to option to make something sculptural if they would prefer like an animal.
£20 per child
Kids will be given a blob of earthenware clay, they will then be taken through how to make and decorate a pinch pot. Once we have made the pot’s shape we will then decorate it using slip. There will be a choice of APPLE GREEN, DARK TURQUOISE, TERRACOTTA, RED, ORANGE, PINK, BLACK, WHITE, BLUE, DUCK EGG BLUE, WHITE and YELLOW slip. When they are finished the pottery will be dried out, coated in a transparent glaze and fired for you to collect 2 weeks later.
The Birthday persons parents will need to stay for the duration of the party to supervise. Guests will need to wear clothes they do not mind getting a little messy, but there will also be some disposable aprons available. I can seat up to 10 children
Once work goes into the kiln I can’t be responsible for how your work comes out as that is the nature of ceramics - but generally I can piece most stuff back together.
