Kids can participate with their older siblings and parents under the Family Clay Fun Programme. This is a one-off 2-hour programme that promotes conversations, stirs up your creativity and fosters closer family bonds. The family will decide as a group on what to create and with the trainer’s guidance, your group willcreate a unique claywork complete with colours. This often becomes a family keep-sake.

Kids above 7 years old – Pottery for Kids

Children instinctively use their hands and fingers to knead, pinch and mgregoryould clay. Offer your child the opportunity to create with their hands and expand their imagination through kinesthetic play.

Children learn best when they we engage their senses. The clay lesson focuses on what the child is curious about, and we use clay as the medium to create realistic, fantasy and even abstract works. Children also learn how to create clay artworks as a reflection of themselves. This inquiry-based programme develops a more confident and assured child.

Pottery for Kids programme. This is a 2 hour programme suited to develop the child’s imaginative and creative abilities.

During the holidays, we offer Trial Wheel throwing for Kids. This is a 1 hour session for kids to experience the kinesthetic force of the wheel against the soft lump of clay.
