This ceramic decoration workshop gives kids the opportunity to work with ceramics and surface treatment using underglazes Underglazes are clay-based materials with ceramic stains and metallic oxides added that are capable of creating a full spectrum of colour. They’re painted on, just like acrylic paints. Underglazes are the fastest and easiest method of surface treatment for adding drawings or illustrations to pottery.

This workshop gives kids the opportunity to decorate their own pieces of pottery. The finished work will then be fired in Cynthia’s studio and will be available for collection from The Gardens Club at a later date (organised with parents through email).

All the materials are provided. Tutor Cynthia Manietta from ‘Turning Earth Ceramics’ will help kids create a personalised masterpiece.

All materials are provided for this workshop including a small bisque ware piece, underglazes, clear gaze, brushes, instructions and firing.

An email will be sent a few days before the workshop with directions to the venue and additional information.

Each child attending must have a ticket. Adults are to remain at the venue for the duration of the workshop. We have a café on site.

Cancellation Policy: As we purchase materials based on the number of attendees for each workshop we are unable to refund tickets. We do welcome you to pass your ticket to a friend to come in your place. Please email us if you do wish to change the name on the ticket
