Hello everyone – I hope everyone had a great Christmas & New Year!
Now that things are settling back down to routine (are they?) I thought is timely to post a reminder about the January School Holiday program – we are making snake pencil holders and monster post. Enrol in one session or both to keep the kids creatively occupied. Visit the SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM page for all the info and enrolment details 🙂
And just to keep you inspired check out these cuties from term four kids classes and some of the great stuff they created 🙂
I have not posted on the blog as much as I wanted during term four as I have not been well during the past few months, as many students will know….. so my New Years Resolution : GOOD HEALTH!!
SO …. Merry Christmas & a Happy New Year to all 🙂
AND be sure to check out the children’s school holiday program for your kids, grandkids and friends kids – spread the word!!
AND, or course the term dates and times are up on the website for term one, so visit the CLASSES page for more information.
Meanwhile here are a few pics from term four to inspire your imagination for new creations in term one.
I’m a bit slow with this weeks school holiday workshop update – that is because my NBN has been down since last Thursday!! I was doing minimal stuff thinking it would be resolved by now – but NO! So I am now chewing up my mobile hotspot coverage (yes I will be demanding compensation) to share the FAB plates & bowls made during the workshop 🙂
And, remember adults classes start this week, and there are a few vacancies available – so visit the SHOP and enrol 🙂
Last Wednesdays school holiday workshop went off with a bang with lots of colourful Christmas decorations being made. The decorations were painted with coloured slips (slip is liquid clay) and when fired the colours will be bright and shiny.
This Wednesdays workshop is also Christmas themed and we will be making bowls decorated with Christmassy designs. These bowls will be fired to stoneware temperature so can be used in the oven, microwave and dishwasher, so will make a great addition to the Christmas table. To enrol go to the SHOP and click on the School Holiday category.
And for the adults classes begin the following week beginning October 4th. To enrol visit the SHOP and click on the Ceramic Classes category – easy!
Happy Sunday 🙂
There are a series of workshops coming up at the ClayMotion studio over the next month or so:

See the flyers below for more information and then visit the School Holiday Program Page and Workshops page for more detailed info, and enrol online via the SHOP or ring me on 0438382522.

Hope to see you soon 🙂
Wednesday mornings school holiday class was a great success with seven happy children making presents for dad. We made pencil holders and coin dishes which were painted with coloured clips. They are now drying before being loaded into the kiln and a clear shiny glaze being applied.
There is another workshop this coming Wednesday 6th July in the afternoon from 2-4pm and again we will be making gifts for dad, grandpa, an uncle or a family friend, whatever dad is special in your life. We will be making a coffee mug and a key/coin dish, so jump on the website, visit the shop and enrol online or call me on 0438382522
Here’s some pics from last Wednesdays class 🙂
Term two is over for children’s classes and there is one more week left for adults classes – that sure went fast!
It was a great term with students being so patient with the delays of the kilns being connected after the studio renovations – which you can read about HERE. Thankyou students 🙂
The CLASSES page has been updated for term three, and the SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM page is updated for this coming holidays, and you can enrol easily via the SHOP.
This school holidays classes are all about Fathers Day which is on September 4th this year. Make dad, grandpa or an uncle a mug and key chain or a pencil holder and coin dish…. both classes are different, so the kids can join in both.
Meanwhile, here are a few photo collages from during term two children’s classes to tempt you!
Have a great week 🙂
Happy Easter Everyone!!
Term One has come to an end, but for children there are still fun opportunities over the school break with two workshops being held on each Wednesday of the holidays – in both classes we are making Mothers Day gifts. these gifts will make great pressies for mums, nanas, aunts, sisters, even the neighbour across the road!
These classes will be lots of fun … check the SCHOOL HOLIDAY PROGRAM page for all the details.
But, of course, there was lots of great work made by the children during term one…. check out some of the posts about term one HERE.
Meanwhile here are some finished works by the children during term one … enjoy!
Yesterdays ClayMotion school holiday pottery class was great with some fabulous monster pots being made by young creative minds! I just loved the design skills of these children, it never ceases to amaze me how creative they can be!
Children’s after school classes start in a couple of weeks – visit the CLASSES page for more information and the SHOP page to enrol or call me on 0438382522 🙂
In the meantime check out what we created yesterday 🙂
School Holiday Kids Class – Pottery in Ballarat
It was a hot windy today – 40+ in fact!
This mornings class started at 10am, before the heat of the day, so the studio was reasonably cool, and though a small group they were enthusiastic about creating fantasy creatures!
The brief was hand modelling a basic shape, then adding detail and painting with coloured slips – I will then dip in a clear glaze to make the finished works shiny. And I must say the children’s creations look fantastic!
There is anther school holiday next Wednesday 20th January – details are available on the School Holiday Workshops Page 🙂
