Course Description

Create a friendly owl-shaped planter pot out of ceramic clay. In this project, children will learn clay hand-building and slab construction skills to create their own owl planter pot. They will build their pot using the pinch pot construction method and then add details by attaching thin slabs of clay. Once complete, we will add colour to our pots with clay underglaze paints.
