CHOCTOBERFEST borrows from the Bavarian festival of all things beer but given a much more age appropriate spin!
Participants will use proper clay to make and paint a hot chocolate mug using the coil-pot technique. The creations will be left with us to be fired and glazed so when the young potter’s collect their creations from the studio approx. one month later, they’ll be able to drink hot chocolate and marshmallows from them.
“There’s nothing quite so satisfying as drinking from a cup or mug made by your own fair hand” commented Sarah the potter. “I make fun and functional tableware and even after nearly 30 years of making, I still get a kick from using one of my own creations. It’ll be lovely for the children on a chilly autumnal evening to wrap their hands around a steaming cup of cocoa knowing they’ve hand crafted it.” she continued.
The workshops designed for children as young as 4 years take place on two consecutive Wednesdays to account for the different half terms. Gloucestershire will get to potter on the 24th and Hereford & Worcester on the 31st.
1.5 hr sessions commence at 11.30am and 2pm and are tailored for two age groups: 4-8yrs in the mornings and 9-12yrs in the afternoons. These age ranges are designed as a rough guide and are not strictly adhered to as younger and older siblings are always welcome to participate on either session.
Places cost £15 per head with a 10% discount for x3 or more places booked. Telephone and email booking essential: Tel: 01531 633886 e: [email protected]
