Want some cool clay fun for your children these holidays? Clay Club at Slow Clay Centre in Collingwood is the place to come! Our holiday Clay Club is run over two consecutive mornings, 24-25 January 2017, 9.30am - 12.30pm. Children receive tuition and guidance in all aspects of making ceramics, including using the potter's wheel, in an atmosphere of fun and exploration.
Children at play need a variety of tactile experiences to learn about the complexity and richness of information the world has to offer. In this ever more technologically focused world it is easy for kids to miss out. Clay Club can help you bring them back down to earth (!) by offering pottery lessons providing a messy, muddy alternative for kids to express themselves. Open ended and exploratory in nature, Clay Club lessons provide a place for kids to come and have fun making things with clay. Kids can choose between collaborative and individual experiences and all will be offered the chance to work on a potterʼs wheel.
Slow Clay Centre teachers are mindful that childrenʼs time is often ﬁlled with pressure at schools that require outcomes. Clay Club is therefore focussed on the unique experience of working with clay: a plastic, responsive material that can be manipulated in many varying, exciting and very personal ways. We avoid precsriptive outcomes and prefer to focus on enjoyment of the material with a view to developing life-long learning.
The fee is inclusive of materials and firing. Finished work can be collected a few weeks later.
Age: 7 years and over. All levels welcome.
This class will run for 2 x morning sessions, 9.30am - 12.30.
Gift vouchers available!
I have done Slow Clay a few times before, and I know just how amazing it is to be there, and let your imagination run wild. The class taught everyone everything they needed to get started, then left theme be creative, moving around the room, helping out. I think the best part of Slow Clay is probably that you get to know everyone, and have fun with a bunch of people. That is part of what makes being there so great.
My son, Griffin, attended the 'Clay Club' workshop for the first time recently and when I asked him for his review he said the class was 'Exciting, challenging and rewarding with kind staff' Afterwards he asked me how much it had cost and did a quick calculation on how many pots he could make and sell to see if funding another enrolment next holidays might be a possibility!!
I realy love going to slow clay club every holiday, it's always the hilight of my holiday. I've never gone to a place where you can be so creative. It's very rearly that you find a place where you can learn all about clay. (Expecially a good one) ♡ i find it's a good way to cleanse my mind. My brother loves going too. I'd recommend this to anyone who likes making things.
