We request a check in and hand sanitising on arrival as per Covid NSW Safe Guidelines.

Clay process: Pieces will be made within the 2 hour workshops. Clay needs to be dried, and then fired a bisque temperature of 1000 degrees. Once fired we will clear glaze children’s work t make it bright and shiny. You will receive an email when the pieces are ready for collection. This will usually take around 3 weeks from date of workshop.

NB: All materials used in our workshops are non toxic to children.
