Cold Clay Vessel making Workshop-Botanical Imprints on Thursday 30th of July 2015 at 6p.m.

We love gardens and the beauty of nature and strive to let this be reflected in our work.Seasons decide what plant materials are available in the gardens when we create the clay vessels,so a particular impression is only available during the plant's growing season.Also,the great thing about our botanical vessels is that no two pieces are ever the same.
This modeling clay allows artisans between 1- 2 hours to complete their art work.
Participants will create a small vessel from cold clay with different surface textures.

Plant Weaving

Encouraging children to explore our natural resources is such a wonderful opportunity to promote curiosity and discovery through wonderful sensory experiences.
Our group of Crafty cherries learned to create simple looms that kids can carry around to collect nature treasures.The first thing we find are our sticks,you need four to do each loom. Next, we gather what we will weave with.We collected a variety of flowers and plants.We tied a knot at one end of the top stick then zigzagged my way across the loom,wrapping the yarn around twice to hold it in place at each spot.Once the loom is ready, you can start to weave the plants through the thread.Once complete, you have a little nature tapestry to display.Displaying them is so much fun though and they still look beautiful after they dry out.
