As seen on The Guardian, TimeOut, Broadsheet, Concrete Playground, Sydney Morning Herald, The Age, and more. Here's how it works:

  1. Book or Request your preferred time
  2. We'll deliver a ClassBento Box to you - this is a physical DIY craft box containing the materials you'll need. Shipping is free, and it should arrive within 2 to 4 business days for Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Canberra; 4 to 9 days elsewhere. We ship nationwide.
  3. Enjoy the online class. You'll receive a link to a Zoom meeting. On the day of the class, use that link to join the class. Class sizes are kept small, so you can easily ask questions and get immediate responses. Zoom is free and easy to use, on any device - smartphone, tablet or laptop. You're in control of your privacy - you can mute yourself and hide your webcam if and when you prefer.

This is a 45 minute program designed for primary school-age kids.

Using fairy gardens, swamps and other landscapes as inspiration we will work with clay and explore different building techniques.

Each child will construct a unique landscape, drawing different features from fantasy worlds, using creativity and imagination to put it all together.

Once the landscapes have emerged from the creative process, they will be decorated with coloured slips.

The pieces will now be created but not quite complete! The next step is to dry them for approximately 3 days or until they are no longer cold to touch and then bring them to our studio in Mordialloc for firing *If you are not local to Mordialloc google your local pottery and ring them to book in and use their firing service.

Alternatively you can get your kids to paint them with poster paint for a less permanent/durable finish.
