Children learn how to be inspired by traditional Aboriginal ceramic making – how and why this was important to traditional lifestyles. Each program offers one presenter face to face guiding children and educators to experiment with ceramics by making a keepsake. Educators are given the opportunity to ask and understand how to include culturally appropriate items for the children in their service. All materials included.

Single session: Basic introduction to the traditional practice of ceramics, practical activity, and keepsake item.

Three-session program: Introduction to traditional practice of ceramics delivered over 3 sessions, with each session adding steps to an individual keepsake piece for each child.

Tampowa Program: An in-depth investigation into the traditional practice of ceramics, delivered over 6-10 weeks, culminating in a collaborative ceramics piece to be kept at the service. Each session will build on the techniques used and will give children and educators a chance to work on the collaborative piece, along with an individual keepsake piece.

‘Tampowa is an Awabakal word meaning clay’.

Note: extra costs may be incurred depending on ceramic materials as agreed upon.
