Get messy in this clay-based family workshop.

Learn how to create a clay coil pot then put your own personal stamp on it by designing a logo inspired by the Foundling Hospital’s emblem. No experience is necessary, just a willingness to get stuck in! At the end of the session you’ll be free to take your masterpiece home to show it off to your family and friends. This workshop is delivered by participants of Tracing Our Tales, our award-winning training programme for care-experienced young people. Suitable for ages 5-12.

There are two sessions, running from 11am-1pm and 2pm-4pm. You can choose your preferred time at the checkout.
