Hand Moulding Pottery: Christmas Ornaments
12 November @ 4:30 pm - 6:00 pm£35
In this delightful pottery class in Birmingham, you’ll have the chance to immerse yourself in the world of clay and let your creativity run wild.
Get ready to roll up your sleeves, feel the textures, and create adorable 3D Christmas gonks alongside a choice of one more hanging ornament from air-dry clay. Don’t worry if you’re new to pottery, your knowledgeable host will guide you through each step with a step-by-step demonstration.
In this workshop, you’ll learn invaluable pottery techniques such as pushing pottery forms, patting slabs, and pinching pots. You’ll also discover how to scrape, slip, and attach elements. Additionally, your skilled instructor will teach you the art of sculpting gonk-like features, adding a touch of charm to your creations. So even if you’ve never tried pottery before, you’ll feel supported and inspired throughout the class.
Working with air-dry clay is perfect for beginners, as it doesn’t require a kiln for drying. Simply leave your creations overnight, and they will be ready to display. To further enhance your ornaments, you’ll receive a special pottery paint kit to decorate them at home once they’re dry. An instruction leaflet will also be included to ensure you have all the guidance you need.
Not only is this pottery class an opportunity to learn new skills, but it’s also a great way to bond with friends. Expect plenty of laughter as you compare your pottery skills and create lasting memories. You can even give your beautifully handcrafted ornaments as thoughtful gifts and potentially win the prize for the most heartfelt present.
