Kids Head Planter Workshop (5 & 7 January 2022)

Kids Head Planter Workshop with Monte Lupo Arts: 1–3pm 5 & 7 January 2022.

In this two-part workshop held over two days, kids will learn from artist Kim Green from Monte Lupo Arts to sculpt and decorate their own unique ceramic head planter. 

These head planters are smaller than the ones we make with adults, at about 15cm high. In the first week's 2-hour workshop, Kim will show the kids a range of hand-building pottery techniques to sculpt their head planters, including: scoring and slipping; coil building; slab building; and mould pressing. When everyone returns for the second workshop, they will paint their planters with underglazes. Sculptures will be fired twice following this second workshop (the final time with a clear glaze), and finished pieces will be available for collection from Plant Empire from 14 January.

All levels of experience are welcome for this workshop, and all materials and equipment for the workshop will be supplied. We don't send workshop reminders after you've registered, so please be sure to write the date in your diary when you register. You don't need to bring anything on the day, except closed shoes and clothes you don't mind getting decorated with clay. This workshop is suitable for children of all ages and all Plant Empire workshop presenters involving children are Blue Card holders.
