Creative Kids: Botanical Ceramics Workshop (13 January 2020)
Creative Kids: Botanical Ceramics Workshop with Jane du Rand: 1:30–3:30pm Monday 13 January.
This is the seventh in a series of kids' workshops that Plant Empire will be hosting for creative kids during the summer school holidays.
In this workshop, ceramic and mosaic artist Jane du Rand will work with young creatives to learn how to draw botanical designs, and then bring their art to life using clay. Kids can choose to make leaves, flowers, seeds and small insects with their own selection of decorative finishes and colours. Kids will create 10–15 botanical tiles in total, making perfect gifts for family and friends, or decorations for the home. These pieces can also be used as feature tiles to make mosaic planters, for children joining this workshop with Jane on 16 January (as shown the photos below).
Finished pieces will be kiln-fired during the week following the workshop, and can be collected from Plant Empire from 16–31 January.
All materials and equipment for the workshop, including clay and coloured slip to make the decorations will be supplied. All levels of experience welcome. Please wear closed shoes and clothes you can get dirty (or an apron).
This workshop is targeted for kids 8–13 years old, although children a little younger or older are welcome to join where siblings are attending. All Plant Empire workshop presenters involving children are Blue Card holders.
