This workshop is fully booked. Please email gallery@rrc.qld.gov.au to express your interest in future pottery and children's workshops.

Get messy and creative this Easter holiday with pottery nest-making! These special nests can transform into plant pots or pencil holders afterwards.

Young people are naturally creative, but as you get older and more focused on schoolwork and exams, you have less opportunity to get messy, get inventive, or express yourself through art.

Our two-hour School's Out Art Mash-Ups will give you the perfect break from homework to have fun by experimenting with pottery and letting your imagination run wild.

Use clay to create a one-of-a-kind artwork to keep forever or give away as a gift. In this workshop, you will experiment with different tools and techniques to create some Easter treasures. Make an Easter nest that will transform into a plant pot, jewellery holder or pen holder afterwards.

Your artwork will then be fired with a clear glaze by the artist educator and returned for collection after firing, ensuring that they last a lifetime.

Pottery sculptures will be available for collection approximately one week after the workshop.
