Event description

Description

Hand squeezed objects – clay making sessions for babies and toddlers

Make objects that capture the imprints of tiny hands in these sessions with artists Leah Carless and Joanne Masding. Leah and Joanne will introduce your babies and toddlers to the joys of making as they feel, squeeze and mix different coloured clays to make imprints of their hands that can be turned into a range of objects.

Choose to make lightpulls, drawer handles or pendants, or leave them as palm-sized sculptures for your mantelpiece. We’ll have plenty of examples to look at for inspiration.

Once mixed and squeezed into shape, Leah and Joanne will fire and glaze the pieces, and prepare them for collection in early December, in plenty of time for Father Christmas to deliver to your small artists’ eager fans!

Once signed up, we'll contact you to book a 15 minute slot between 10am and 12noon. Your ticket includes making two squeezed clay objects in a 15 minute session, and you’ll have the opportunity to make and buy additional pieces on the day. We can take cash and card payments. Sessions are organised so that teachers work with infants one-on-one in short sessions, so that we can support closely.

If you have any questions please get in touch.

Additional information:

  • This course is suitable for all levels and abilities.

  • Your work will be fired and glazed ready for you to collect.

  • It's easier to do ceramics with short nails so if you have time give them a trim before you come!

  • Modern Clay is situated at Minerva Works, a complex of various art spaces and businesses, a short walk from Birmingham city centre, on Fazeley Street in Digbeth. Unfortunately we do not currently have a working lift. Please contact us in advance if you need help accessing the workshop (located on the first floor). Pushchairs can be left on the ground floor.
