Elizabeth Bourke

Term 2 - 8 week course - 09 May to 27 June

Thursdays - 1:00 pm to 2:30 pm

Minimum 5 / maximum 12 students per course. Age 7 to 12 years.


In this eight week course, each child is encouraged to work imaginatively with clay, developing a range of skills to complete quirky and interesting projects. The children use Keane Ceramics Earthenware for their projects and gain experience decorating them with underglaze and glaze.

  • basic knowledge about clay;

  • how to develop an idea into a creative clay form;

  • how to create a pinch pot;

  • how to roll coils and create a coiled form;

  • how to roll slabs, cut and create a slab form;
