A morning at the Ceramic Cafe

We are almost at the end of our first week of school holidays here in Victoria, and there has been a lot of crafty pursuits happening in the SUDs household, including baking, drawing and painting… soon I shall be teaching my young daughter some sewing, too!

But today we took our paintbrushes outside of the home and met up with some like-minded friends (my “painting buddies”, Anne & Karen, and their two gorgeous girls) to go to the amazing Ceramic Cafe.

Just look at the concentration on my DD’s face!

Rosie’s completed cupcake… ready to be glazed and fired along with these beauties…

The cupcake in the pic above is the one I painted… but Rosie’s is much more creative!

We had such a fun morning, the children thoroughly enjoyed themselves – as did us adults! If you live in the Eastern suburbs of Melbourne and are looking for a fun activity this school holidays – I thoroughly recommend this place!

Now to wait a week and collect our finished items… what shall we do in the meantime? Hmmm… more painting!! Smile

Hugs! Vikki & Rosie xx

Awwww.... Rosie is so cute. Tell her I think she has the makings of a wonderful artist and I can't wait to see her ceramics all fired and finished.

My daughter and I have had a go at this in the past. They always look fantastic once glazed and fired. I then joined a ceramic painting class, it can get quite addictive too.

Quilt Kitty said...

Vikki that is such a beautiful photo of you & Rosie. What a great creative activity to do together & with friends. She is obviously very crestive like her mum. Love Rosie's kitty! Tracee xx

Joy said...

Well the apple hasn't fallen far from the tree!! I think you have a budding artist there, I just LOVE Rosie's heart and flowers pic!!! I remember doing the same thing with Bear when she was about 10, she made the most wonderful Christmas candy box - such a treasure. I know Rosie's and your cupcakes will be too, what lovely memories they'll bring back to you both in years to come ;o).
Love n hugs dear one,
Ethel xxxx *mwah* xxxx

So nice to see you both! I love doing crafts with Claire too :o) I won't be getting my kiln up and running this year as it would be a waste of money because with all the patchwork, I really don't have time for pottery but maybe next Spring! Hugs, L
