When you bring in your child it will take about 6 minutes to do the actual plate. The child needs to be able to hold their hand open, around 9 months and older is fine. We have done the whole family so they have their special plates. The children like to see Mom and Dad make one to. It makes a fun lunch or breakfast table. Please schedule an appointment. If children are interested in pottery and time allows, we can add a short class for them for a small fee.
