Friday Art Club
CLAY, CLAY, CLAY
BOOKING IS NOW OPEN for our next 5 week block on Friday afternoons based from our studio in South Queensferry.
3.30pm - 5pm Suitable for kids now in P3 - P7/S1
In this block we will be having fun with clay!
14th January - This week we will start to plan a panel of 4 tiles, for kids to tell their story. What they love, who they love and things that make them happy.
This project will be worked on over a few weeks so its best that kids can commit to the block. Once their tiles have all been fired these will be mounted onto wood.
NB: In preparation for this block, it would be helpful if our artists could give these themes some thought before they come along.
21st January - rolling and cutting clay tiles and starting to apply surface design. Kids will make their own coloured 'slip' to decorate with.
28th January - carving and applying 3d shapes to the surface tile
4th February - kids will learn how too use sgraffito to one of their tiles. Final painting and finishing of all tiles.
11th February - Kids will sand and wax their wood before mounting their tiles onto it.
NB: All materials will be provided.
Class numbers are limited to 8 and we will be taking all the necessary precautions to keep everyone safe in line with prevailing guidelines. Most importantly we are going to have lots of fun!
This will be messy so please bring an apron :)
"My daughter has thoroughly enjoyed the weekly home sessions with Juliet. She has loved doing something a bit different and learning how to use clay. Juliet is fantastic with the kids and the online sessions have worked well, with well thought out home kits delivered before the start of the sessions. Would definitely recommend" Susan Deacon March 2021
