Pottery for Kids



Make something cute and practical these school holidays - your own handcrafted animal pencil holder. Your teacher, Lize will begin with a skills demonstration. You will then experiment with slab hand building and progress to craving and decorating your pencil holder. These will be glazed inside and out with a simple white glaze. 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.

Please note we are strict with the age range for this workshop. If your child is under 8 they cannot take this class, even if enrolling with a sibling. Thankyou for your understanding.

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
