£125.00

In brief

This is a 6 week long Create in Clay with the Pottery Wheel course running in Block 2 of the Autumn Term 2020.

Ages

These one-hour classes are perfect for children aged 5-11 years. Each child will have their own work station and pottery wheel. The smaller class sizes and this more intensive style of learning can be better in smaller chunks for our youngest potters.

Times and Duration

This Create in Clay course runs on Tuesdays from 4pm till 5pm during term time, for a duration of 6 weeks, starting after half term on 3rd November 2020.

What we do

Each child will have full access to their own wheel and work station within this class. This mimics the set-up of our adult Intensive Throwing courses in that each child will have an individual wheel and more intensive personalised tutorage from our teachers. This smaller class size and altered classroom set up will enable us to offer an extremely high level of quality in the classes whilst keeping everyone safe. This also enables us to be as inclusive as possible as we are able to provide more individualised learning and support – something that will make engagement better for everyone.

The Create in Clay with the Pottery Wheel course is at the core of the Kite Studios’ ethos and perfectly encapsulates our belief that creativity and confidence are sustained and moulded greatly through the sense of touch. The Create in Clay course has been designed to teach and explore all things clay. Starting from learning about design, colour and form to the very nature of clay; the way it is sculpted, the different techniques that can be used to do so, forming clay at the potter’s wheel and even giving the students a chance to put their very own work into the kiln to be fired.

While the outcome of finished pieces helps motivate students, our focus is on engaging everyone in the process while having fun in a relaxed, informal and inspirational environment.
