Home Sweet Home family workshops at Coalport China Museum
5th February 2015
Go along and try your hand at making a Tea Light Holder by sculpting a cottage, castle or lighthouse from clay. Once fired you can put a small candle inside your sculpture and transform it into a beautiful Tea Light Holder. Throughout the holidays you can also sculpt a clay creation of your choice and take it home unfired, paint a delicate china flower or fridge magnet, or join in paper based activities.
The half-term workshops at Coalport China Museum will be held from 11am until 1pm and 2pm until 4pm; fired ceramic activities carry an additional fee from £4, plus a postage charge from £3.50, if you want to have your creation sent home after firing.
Unfired ceramic activities are charged at £2.50 and Flower/ fridge magnets cost £1.
