A Little Blueberry Bowl

FOR CHILDREN 4.5- 7 YEARS : POTTERY WORKSHOPS HELD AT THE KINDERGARTEN

Ready for the Kindergarten Clayworks Spring 2019 Tour? A Little Blueberry Bowl for your summer adventures.

Our inspiration will come from Blueberries for Sal by Robert McCloskey. This is an American classic from 1948. Sal and her mother go hunting for blueberries to store for the winter. So does a mother bear and her cub…..

Kuplink! Kuplank! Kuplink! Sal eats as many as she collects!

Your children will make a beautiful ceramic bowl to hold berry treasure until they are eaten up!

This is the popular 4 week workshop. It is 45 minutes per session for 4 consecutive weeks.  Children participate in small groups of 4 to ensure the support that is needed for learning handbuilding skills.

Suzanne focuses on encouraging each child to TRY to create something that often seems too difficult as first glance. Self- esteem is the result of each week’s success! More than just playdough fun! This is a fine motor, problem solving, skill building event where the children have the opportunity to watch, listen to instructions and follow through using their own new skills. The results will certainly surprise them AND you!

Here is the schedule of fun: We will read and examine the book for inspiration.

Day 1: Make clay coils and shape the to the mold. A real, ancient artisan skill!
Day 2: Smooth bowl and create holes and cut outs with straws and texture.
Day 3: Make a traditional Finnish bear!
Day 4: We will glaze everything we have made.

These bowls will be dishwasher safe! Projects will be ready for pick up at school 3 weeks after workshop.
