Bardwell Park Infants School

Ceramics in schools offers 2 programs. Students can either make an individual work or collaborate on a mural or 3D work.

The individual works are based on a theme and are taught to the class by either Kris or Sue.

The collaborative work can involve a class, a year group, up to the entire school. Usually both Kris and Sue work together to teach the class.


To create a ceramic object requires 2 visits, one visit to make the work and one visit to paint the work. There is a period of, say at least 2 weeks between visits when the work is air dried and bisque fired(1000). Once the work has been painted it is dipped into clear glaze and fired to earthenware temperature (1080).

MAKING VISIT

Kris and Sue usually work together with each class
Ideally work from 1 room so the mural can grow as each class works on their predetermined, age appropriate part

Work cleared by end of each day

GLAZE VISIT

Since the mural is collaborative, students do not necessarily paint the same piece that they have made. They are encouraged to honour and respect the work that has gone before them by painting to the best of their ability.
