This morning I travelled out to Millbrook, only a ten minute drive from the ClayMotion studio, to workshop a mums and bubs session with Mums from the Gordon Playgroup at the Millbrook Community Hall.
The community hall was once a primary school established in 1877, I guess during the prosperous gold rush era. The grounds also boasted a time capsule, marked by a stone and plaque, due to be opened in 2035 (I think, off memory). I wish I had taken a photo!
Mums made a plate which they decorated with coloured slip and decorative stamps…. plus baby handprints or footprints – a great and treasured lasting memento! There was even a grandmother participating who created a plate with her grandchildren’s prints.
Everyone had a great time with the group deciding they would have future sessions where we would make different clay mementos.
Mums and bubs sessions can be conducted from my studio or where your mothers group meets on any day of the week that doesn’t clash with my studio classes – simply contact me to discuss your needs 🙂
And finally, here are some photos from the session 🙂
