ClayMotion Holiday Workshop: Coffee Mug & Coin/Key Dish


Children will create a coffee mug using the coiling method of construction. A coin/key dish will also be created using the pinching/rolling methods. They will be decorated with coloured slip (liquid clay) and may be personalised. The children will also design a Fathers Day gift tag to accompany the coffee mug and coin/key dish.

The coffee mug, once dry and fired and ready to pick up will be filled with fair trade chocolates and the gift tag will be tied on with jute.

These coffee mugs and key/coin dishes are a great Fathers Day gift for dads, grandpas, uncles and family friends.

This is a fun activity designed to stimulate the children’s imagination, and aid dexterity and fine motor skills..

Parents will be contacted when the dishes are fired and ready to pick up.
