Looking for a different Christmas gift for a child? I have the perfect parent & child "doing" gift.
Gold Coast Potters are offering a "Kids & Adults Play with Clay Together" session on Sat 12th Jan, 2013 - ideal for sharing quality time together and having some fun. The Potters are also hosting a "Wheel Throwing Workshop for Children" which runs over 2 consecutive days on Wed 9 & Thurs 10, Jan 2013. That would be a great voucher to receive in your Christmas stocking – giving a child the hands on opportunity to learn the basics of wheel throwing and to create their own unique pieces. It's also a good option for keeping kids busy at that stage of the long summer holiday.
The "Kids & Adults Play with Clay" is a two hour workshop on Sat 12 Jan, 2013, from 9 – 11am (an additional afternoon session may be scheduled depending on numbers). The cost including class, materials, glazing and 2 firings by the teacher is $45 pp. This workshop "is great for building on imagination and spontaneity".
The 2 day "Wheel Throwing Workshop for Children" (also 9 – 11am) on Wed 9 & Thurs 10, Jan 2013, will have kids working on the wheel on day one, making bowls, cylinders and plates. On day two, it's time for turning off pots, painting and decorating. The cost of the two day course is $80 per child.
Book in for a Christmas present with a difference or for some holiday fun before it's time to go back to school. Numbers are limited, so if you are interested, contact Lynette Rogers on:
