The Do Art Pottery Studio is a basic pottery set designed for children to introduce them to the basics of pottery and its history as an art form. The kit contains safe, no-bake clay, as well as instructions and additional equipment to help get children creating and having fun right away.
Contents and use
The Do Art Pottery Studio is manufactured by Faber-Castell (or Creativity for Kids, depending on international location), a company specializing in creative educational content for children. The contents are designed to be easy to use, and are recommended for children ages 8 and above.
Contents include a basic pottery wheel with foot pedal, shaping tools, a single large tub of white acrylic paint, tubs of opaque acrylic paint, containers of transparent paint for glazing and two paint brushes. The pottery wheel needs four C batteries to operate, which are not included.
The kit also includes a table cover and apron, and 3 lbs of air dry clay along with a trimming cord. For starting ideas and general advice, there is also an instruction and ideas booklet.
Following the starting tips in the booklet is the best way to get started and build confidence, and refill kits are available when the clay has all been used.
