After School Classess
Age: 8 years and over. All levels welcome.
Children need a variety of tactile experiences to learn about the complexity and richness of information the world has to offer. In this ever more technologically focused world it is easy for kids to miss out on tactile experiences. Clay Club can help you bring them back down to earth by offering pottery lessons providing a messy, muddy alternative for kids to express themselves. Open ended and exploratory in nature, Clay Club provides a place for kids to come and have fun making with clay. Kids can choose between collaborative and individual experiences and all will be offered the chance to develop skills on the potterʼs wheel. Slow Clay Centre teachers are mindful that childrenʼs time is often ﬁlled with pressure at school. Clay Club, therefore, is not about producing products to take home to parents – although they certainly will! Rather, the focus is on the experience of experimenting and playing with a plastic, responsive material that can be manipulated in many varying, exciting and often quite personal ways.

Thank you for offering such a great program for children, my son has thoroughly enjoyed his experiences at Slow Clay Club for Kids. The environment is beautiful in every way. His teacher Louise really inspired his imagination by discussing his ideas in detail and showing him how to make them a reality, achieving a delicate balance between creativity and practical techniques. His creations have been way beyond my expectations and he is so proud of his work!
