Wee Folks Woods–the beginning

jan 16 054 (2)
We have been busy with our big buddies planning
a second Fairy Lane.  This one will be called Wee Folks Woods
because there could be many different creatures living there.
It’s going to be situated in the woods behind our school
so we can make frequent visits.

There were fairies, trolls, gnomes, witches, flying pigs, ogres and more mentioned.

Today was clay day.  Our big buddies used the drawings to prepare
the shape of the doors before we arrived.

Working together to finish the designs with details of stones, wood,
doorknobs, bricks, hinges and windows.
We learned the proper technique to attach bits of clay to the main door.

By the end of our session the doors are ready to sit at room temperature
before they are fired in the kiln.
