Online | Fun with Ceramics | Age 8-12 years

This is a new 4 week course with step by step activities taught via ZOOM.

Students will enjoy learning about sculpture and ceramics as you make some creative artworks in clay. Through structured activities and projects students will develop whole range of clay hand building techniques to make some fun sculptures and functional ceramics. Activities are age appropriate and structured around hands on practice of foundation skills, creativity and experimentation. Some artworks will be kiln fired and glazed.

This class is conducted online from our Zoom Art Room - you just use your hands, fingers and simple tools for hand building to create your ceramic sculptures.

Fun with Ceramics is held different days of the week with different tutors and content so you may wish to enrol in more than one class.
