Hand Squeezed Objects will introduces under 5’s and their adults to the joys of making through feeling, squeezing and mixing coloured clay.
Hand Squeezed Objects led by Joanne Masding will introduce under 5’s and their adults to the joys of making through feeling, squeezing and mixing different coloured clays to make ceramic objects that capture the imprints of their tiny hands. The squeezed pieces of clay can then be turned into lightpulls, drawer handles, pendants, or magnets, or left as palm-sized sculptures.
This is a playful session that encourages young children to explore new textures and sensations. For the first half of the session the group will be led through a series of explorative making exercises, followed by free-play with clay for those who want to stay for the full two hours.
For families with children age 5 years and under, no previous experience is necessary.
