Dear children and parents
Working with clay can be both exciting and satisfying for young and
old. Exciting because of creating something completely new from one's
and satisfying as one progresses towards completion.
Using a flat slab of clay you can make a name plaque for your house or
flat and decorate it using emblems that are special to you and your
Also try making a 3-D object using rolled strips of clay. Decorate the
vase with attractive engraved decoration.
I supply all the tools. All you need is some imagination and your hands
and of course an apron.
Just try and your pot will grow.
Throwing pots on the pottery wheel has a long tradition. Is it not easy
and I provide the necessary tips and
tricks so that anyone can make small bowls or vases after a few hours
Patience is the most important quality that you should have.
All pots are fired to 920°, after which they can be glazed and refired
I can glaze them for you or you can try this yourself,(although I don't
recommend this for children).
If you feel the urge to be creative then work together with your
children and make wonderful pottery.
All your high-fired pots can be used for food and drink and be washed
in the dish washer.
Hours are usually from 9 to 12 a.m. but afternoons are also possible.
Phone to arrange a date if you already have a group.
