Ceramics: Animal finger puppets 9-12 years

Half-day school holiday workshop teaching hand-building techniques

Produced by the City of Sydney

Bookings open 5 June 2019

Kids will have fun creating clay finger puppets in this half-day school holiday workshop.

Using ceramic pinch pot hand-building techniques, they’ll make a collection of all their favourite animals including dogs, cats or rabbits. Once the puppets forms are completed, they’ll add individual facial and body features using different surface treatments and underglazes.

This is a great workshop for kids to get an introduction to hand-build techniques and experiment with pressing, rolling, stamping and sgraffito to decorate their works.

This workshop is designed for complete beginners. No prior experience necessary.

Works will be fired and ready to collect approximately 4 weeks after the workshop.
