On Saturday the girls from the Boarding House went to the Ceramic Shack in Horsham. When we arrived, we were given a brief introduction and demonstration of how to clean, paint and decorate our ceramics. We then got the option to design a bowl, mug or miniature animal of our choice. On the walls of the Ceramic Shack, there were several tiles with a colour scheme showing how each colour dried once it was glazed; this gave us a better idea of what colours we wanted to use.

The atmosphere was bursting with creativity. Fishponds and Mansion House boarders made mostly mugs and bowls, each decorated differently. Annika designed a bunny, and Joy decorated a tile to give as a birthday gift to her little brother, Rocky.

After we had all finished our masterpieces, we treated ourselves to an ice cream from a shop just across the street – Sugar and Snow.

Overall, it was a great day out where we got to unleash our inner da Vinci and go crazy at the Ceramic Shack. I would love to go there again, because I feel like it is an excellent way to bring all the boarders together in a place where we can express ourselves and enjoy each other’s company.
