Bookings open 6 September for Term 4 classes!
Clay Club is our kid’s after school pottery class. Two options: Tuesdays and Wednesday afternoons, 4-5.30pm.We also have a school holiday Clay Club.
Age: This course is suitable for 8-16 year olds who must be mature enough to listen to teacher’s instructions and work independently when requested.
Who can attend: Most children 8yrs+ can attend our classes but if your child has special needs we request you consult with us by phone on 99437844 before enrolling them to see if we can accommodate them. Our teachers have first aid training but we reserve the right to cancel an enrolment if we cannot adequately care for their needs in our limited environment.
Content: Young people can experience all options for expression and skill development in clay. Our classes are a great introduction for any budding potters to receive focussed, developmental instruction on the wheel and hand building using our renowned methods. Kids can work at their own pace but also get plenty of inspiration and instruction!
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.

“My daughter says that Clay Club is her favourite time of the week. We have bought some clay for this period where we are all stuck at home and she is teaching us all her clay tips from class, it’s great!” (name supplied, 2020)
“What a great Wednesday after school activity for our active Grade 4 boy. Alana and Gabriela are SO good with the kids, SO inspiring and SO patient to run 90 minutes. We always look forward to the end of term exhibition. Thoroughly recommend Slow Clay.” (Nick, 2019)
“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 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!”
