Dates and Times:

February 5, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Heart Box - Build a heart shaped jewelry box for that special someone, ready in time for Valentine’s Day! Using slab clay, children will learn to cut and join slabs of clay into a useful container with a special fitted lid.

February 12, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Clay Bouquet - Learn how to construct a number of different flower varieties by rolling, coiling and impressing clay. Arrange them all together on a circular slab lid that sits atop a small vase to produce a lovely clay bouquet with a hidden compartment!

February 19, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Sgraffito Plate - Using a round slab of clay and coil edging, children will create a plate that is decorated using the sgraffito technique. This technique involves painting the raw clay with a coloured underglaze before using wire tools to remove layers of coloured clay, producing a unique textural design revealing the clay beneath.

February 26, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Beaver Toothpick Holder - Have fun learning to build this busy little beaver sculpture that also serves as a toothpick holder!

March 5, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Mini Animal Watering Can - Choose an animal that has a naturally long nose, beak or neck to create this whimsical little watering can for your plants. Children will learn how to form a pot with a spout that actually pours water.

March 12, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Bird Feeder - Create a decorative wall plaque with a small half dish for holding birdseed. Children can design this bird feeder to sit flat in the garden, on a tree stump, hang from a fence or from a tree in your yard.

March 19, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Sprouting Head - Using a mound of clay, children learn to sculpt a head or bust that is loaded with expression. A small dish shaped impression on the top of the head will provide space for sprouting seeds to look like hair. Spring is just around the corner!

March 26, 1:30 to 3:00 pm - Garden Snail - Learn to perfect your clay coiling techniques with this garden snail. Children will experiment with adding and impressing designs and shapes onto the shell.

Cost: $12 (SHINE members save $2 with promo code!)
