Clay workshop at the Museum

Clay Cockatootloos

Perfect for little ones who like getting creative! Get your hands messy with clay and sculpt a bird - and the best bit is you don't have to clean up!

You'll use the birds in Roald Dahl's books as inspiration for your masterpiece - think the Roly-Poly Bird from The Twits, or the Swan in Billy and the Minpins. Then stick on sequins, feathers and other beautiful bits to make your design shine. 

We use air drying clay so you can take your creation home with you, and we'll provide something to wear so you can keep your clothes clean - phew!
