Pottery for Kids



Come and join us in the Living and Learning clay studio these school holidays. Our project this time is to make a tripod mug and spoon - perfect for your favourite warm beverage. The first session will be to make the mug and spoon and the second session will be to decorate and glaze the pieces.  Pieces will be fired in the kiln for collecting approximately two weeks after the school holidays.

This workshop is open to people aged 8-12 yrs. If you are under 18 years, the Child Parental Consent section of the enrolment form must be completed prior to the first session.

Participants have the opportunity to exhibit in our end of year diversARTy exhibition at Eltham Library Gallery to celebrate their achievements with friends and family.


This course workshop will be held at our Eltham centre - 739 Main Road
