Creative Kids: Ceramic Turtles (15 & 22 December)
Kids' Ceramic Turtles Workshop with Monte Lupo Arts: 3–5pm Tuesday 15 & 22 December.
This is one of a series of kids' workshops that Plant Empire will be hosting for creative kids during the summer school holidays.
In the first 2-hour workshop, Ceramic artist Kim Green from Monte Lupo Arts will work with young creatives to make several turtle hatchlings in various positions in and out of their shells using clay and moulds. Kids will be invited to think about a turtle's journey from the egg to the ocean and its potentially very long life afterwards, as well as how we can help look after turtles in our own lives.
The kids' artwork will be fired before returning for the second 2-hour workshop to be painted with glazes and the kids' own decorative finishes. Finished pieces will be available for collection from Plant Empire from Tuesday 29 December.
All materials and equipment for the workshop, including clay, tools and glazes will be supplied. This workshop is suitable for kids of all ages. All Plant Empire workshop presenters involving children are Blue Card holders.
