Date // Sunday 24th February 2013, 3-6pm
Venue // Jane James Ceramics & Pizza Express
Our latest event ‘Pots and Pizza Day' on Sunday 24th February was a great success.
Jane James Ceramics was the venue for about 30 of us to meet up and the children excitedly chose whatever pot they wanted to paint. Jane was on hand to talk us through the colours and techniques to get the best out of the painting, but of course lots of the children were just dying to get stuck in and get messy! There was lots of creativity and concentration coming from the children and they all ended up with some really wonderful designs. The pots were all left for firing and we headed off for Pizza Express.
We had 14 children creating their own pizzas, with the help of a jolly Italian chef, which was a lot of fun. After donning their chef hats they shaped out the dough in the trays, and checked it was done by holding it upside down over their heads! The tomato bases were spread and then the children chose their toppings and decorated their pizzas. When they were cooked, the kids tucked in to their own creations and really enjoyed the fact that they had made them themselves.
Lovely to see all those who attended and look forward to seeing you again at our next event.
