Course Description:

Our pre-school sessions are designed for our youngest artists (aged 3+) to come to create together with their adults in order to experience clay making. Supported by the tutor and their adults, children can start discovering the power of the unique creative language that clay can offer. In this session our inspiration comes from the wonders of nature. Come and join us in some messy fun to create bugs and butterflies, snakes and snails, turtles and birds and more.

Bridget Timoney has been a practicing potter for ten years. She studied ceramics at Limerick School of Art and Design. She trained under Gus Mableson at the prestigious Thomastown Skills Course and completed an Adopt a Potter apprenticeship with Julie Ayton. Recently Bridget completed her traineeship as Mirka Golden-Hann’s Visual Arts and Pottery Assistant at Salisbury Arts Centre where she gained an in depth insight into teaching pottery classes to all ages as well as running a community pottery.

Materials explained: Materials will be provided as part of the course. There is no extra charge if you wish to take home your unfired pieces. If you would like us to fire your work for you to have as a forever keepsake, please add into your basket the firing option you would like. Biscuit firing is the first firing which will turn clay into hard ceramic material. Or you can opt for the workshop to glaze fire your work for you in transparent, white, or blue glaze.

Bring: apron, pencil, notebook. Please wear closed-toe shoes.

This course is intended for children aged 3+ and their adults to come and start exploring the creative potential of clay together.
