Children's Pottery Holiday Program (Age 8-13)


Children will learn how to create an amazing piece of their very own pottery. Under our guidance they will be shown how to model and pinch clay to realise their ideas. Clay is a wonderful, tactile medium that many kids have never experienced before. Its three dimensional nature forces them to think about structure, shapes and form. The pieces they create will go through two (2) firing processes, along with us glazing their work ready to be picked up two (2) weeks after the class.

At Di Stirling Pottery, they can experiment with a variety of building techniques while they learn to think about their ideas and adapt to change along the way. Students are assured of personal attention as we have a maximum of eight (8) children.

There is something very magical about children when they are thinking and working creatively. Once children learn to express and execute their personal visions in clay, they can become empowered in ways that go far beyond the walls of the ceramic studio.

Children were taught achievable techniques, and encouraged to enjoy it. Small gp, all move on once eveyones ready to learn the next part. Friendly atmosphere. Hands on fun! Children came away very proud and satisfied, wanting to do it again.
