Kids Workshop - From Monday 20th to Wednesday 22nd of July
Introduce your kids to the art of ceramics for a few days! For kids from 7 years old (group of 8 maximum)
Techniques and learning :
You will learn how to handcraft your own shapes with traditional modeling techniques. From a ball of clay representing the size of a cup, we will create a face with eyes, nose, ears and mouse. We can create from one beloved character or let our imagination work to create our own creature.
After learning the bases of modelling, we decorate it with the “engobes” (a special paint for ceramic). We have a very large choice of colors at the workshop. We can then add all the details to our creatures with this decoration technique : nose, eyes, ears or even mustache and feathers !
Your creations are then cooked in the kiln, at 980°C for 2 days. They will be ready about 10 days after the workshop, and you will then be able to come pick them up at the shop.
Workshop : 4.5 hours total (approx. 2.5 hours modelling, 1 hour finishing touches, 1 hour decorating)
