Galt my first pottery {review}

20:06

Hobbycraft sell all kinds of art supplies, from kits crafts to kitchen crafts!

We were sent this my first pottery to try.
It's a lovely pottery kit that you can build your very own pottery pots with!



'Contents include 1.2kg air drying clay rolling pin modelling tool 12 x 2.3ml ceramic paints paintbrush and guide.'




My children couldn't wait to get stuck into this.

We laid out our newspaper to cover the table.

First rolled out our clay using the plastic rolling pin and then made a round pot shape. We smoothed the clay out using our fingers. Ellie thought that was great fun, hehe. Charlie wanted to add a bit of pattern to his pot using the plastic knife that's provided in the kit.
Harry and I made a 'coil pot' (instructions are included in the pottery kit)



I had to give the kids a bit of help cutting out the lid.

We also made a coil pot. We rolled out out 'snakes' (long sasuage shapes lol) and then stuck them together by pressing them gently into each other.

We left them to dry over night. After they are dry, it's time to paint them! We painted our pots using the the paints supplied in the kit. There's a lovely selection of colours, the kids couldn't decide which colours to use, so we painted out pots multicolored. A bit of each.


The kit itself is well worth £11:00, there's more than enough clay to make at least 4 medium sized pots. I really like the fact that not only instructions were included but picture instructions, too making it easy for the kids to follow! Overall this is a really brilliant arts and crafts activity for children. It's something different and unique and a wonderful introduction to clay. We had a fun afternoon making our pots! These are also a really cool keepsake.
