Family Fun Pottery and Cake Decorating Events at Skerries Art School 2015

Posted on Updated on

From the very young (who brought her bottle and her potty along!) to those displaying a few grey hairs, all places were occupied at the Family Fun Pottery event at Skerries Art School on Saturday afternoon.  Much concentration was extended to cutting, squeezing, kneading and manipulating unpromising blocks of dull grey clay.   And the kids weren’t waiting for the Muse to inspire them, it was straight in with those lovely cutting/poking tools…this was FUN!  As for the adults?  They seemed to find moulding clay very therapeutic.  Perhaps they were remembering playing with Mala (plasticine) at school.
