Why not use your Christmas party to discover a new skill? In this workshop by London Wildflower, you'll use clay to make beautiful hand-built projects. From trinket bowls to model-making and sculptures, your party will learn techniques that will open a world of possibilities in clay.
Your party experience will start with a Clay Kit that will be posted to you in advance of your session, containing everything you need. It's important to note that the clay in your kit will dry naturally within 24-72 hours depending on the size of your project, so no kilns or oven heating is required!
Your online session will teach you basic hand-building skills and essential pottery techniques needed to create a small collection of clay pieces - making lovely display items, or even Christmas gifts!Book now on Obby
