Enable your child to explore their creativity through clay...

Only 6 places available to ensure personalised tuition from our expert artist-in-residence, Robert Buckland. 

Each week the children will explore a different key element from the world of ceramics: model, sculpt, coil, emboss, slab...

The children will learn about the purpose of ceramics, experiment with structure and explore different construction techniques using a variety of tools.

All of the above will both encourage the progress of fine motor skills and sharpen students hand and eye coordination.

Discussion and general debate about their experience and progress is encouraged during all stages of the workshop in order to build self-confidence in public speaking and social development.

Subject matter inspiring their imagination and creativity will change each week.
