We are excited to host Leach Pottery here at Porthmeor Studios to work with our young artists!
Sunday Kids Art Club – Make a Plate with the Leach Pottery
Clay / Beginners – Materials included
Taking inspiration from natural forms, young artists will be taught how to make their own press mould plates to be fired and glazed. They will experiment with slip decoration methods such as slip trailing, feathering and sgraffito.
This session will teach them basic use of a one part press mould and an introduction into slip decoration methods. Young artists will leave with one piece that will be glazed and fired at the Leach Pottery and sent to them up to 12 weeks after the course has finished. Come in old clothes please!
For children aged 7-10, this is a Kids Art Club like no other, where children get to work on easels and use the same high art quality materials as our adult courses. They are taught by experienced artist tutors and start to take their first steps as Young Artists.
We are happy to continue to offer limited FREE Scholarship places for those on low income. Please contact Cat Lee Youth Arts Manager for a Scholarship application form to apply email@example.com.
