Clay has a primal appeal – it’s made from the earth and shapes up into anything you can imagine. It’s cool to the touch and warm to look at. So full of possibilities!
Come get your hands dirty and learn about working with clay. In this class, we’ll use self-drying clay so you can take your creation home and start enjoying it quickly. Laguna Dry Hard Clay is an artist clay suitable for school, home, arts, and crafts. There is no need to kiln-fire this clay that dries leather-hard within 24 hours and rock-hard in several days. Great for modeling, throwing, sculpting, and other hobby projects. Finished work can be painted with acrylic colours, and sealed to become waterproof. You’ll have access to a variety of tools and creative prompts to get you started. Registration includes 2lbs of clay to work with and take home.
Dinner optional: you choice of tacos or burritos from Bandidas Taqueria
Kidspace optional: $10-12/child (This is a facilitated play area with an adult present. It is not registered childcare).
