Preschool Storytime & Pottery Painting

Babies and toddlers up to age 4 are welcome to Iris & Dora’s story time sessions, where we read a story and then paint a piece of pottery that relates to one of the characters. We feel that it’s very important to build creative expression at an early age, so just getting a paint brush in their tiny hands is the first step. This week we will be reading The Snail and the Whale (if you have your own copy then feel free to bring it along), after which we will be painting pottery snails which will be glazed and fired in the kiln and will be ready to collect the following week. We will also be gluing and sticking snail pictures.
