TWIT TWOO!

18 – 22 February 2020

We’re delighted to announce details of our fun and creative themed sessions for families in the approaching February half term.

TWIT TWOO is the theme and potters of all ages and abilities get to fashion an owl from soft clay.

The creative fun doesn’t stop there either. As soon as you have finished modelling your fowl, you’ll get to paint them there and then with coloured underglazes and slips.

The birds will need to dry thoroughly before being fired and glazed in our kiln. This whole process takes about a month and you’ll be contacted once your pottery has emerged from the kiln. If you are unable to collect your pottery masterpieces, P+P can be arranged at £5 per owl.

Clay is such a brilliant medium for families to work with. We’ve facilitated loads of inter generational workshops where 70 yr old participants have got creative alongside their grandchildren and sometimes, great grandchildren! Twit Twoo is designed for children as young as 4years – there is no upper age limit.

1.5 hr sessions commence at 10am, 11.30am and 2pm and places cost £20.

These fabulous terracotta creepy crawlies were made by five Oxfordshire primary schools earlier in the year. Jon the Potter was commissioned by Kingham Lodge to co-create the artwork with the children to be exhibited in the Sculpture at Kingham Lodge exhibition He spent a half day in each school working on the collaborative insects.

The children’s work can be seen alongside sculpture made by professional artists in the beautiful gardens set in the heart of the Cotswolds. The show runs from Saturday 5th May – Sunday 15th May. Open 10am – 5pm daily.
