About the Event

Our November CLAY PLAY with MAGGI WORKSHOP is here! This new program offers a series of ceramic workshops for children and adults of all abilities! Each session, Maggi and Shannon will introduce two fun techniques appropriate for artisans ages 3 and up! All guests will have the opportunity to create custom treasures and lots of new memories! We hope you will join us on Sunday, November 5th from 1pm to 3pm at Our Sensory Farm to create a one of a kind Nature Inspired Serving Plate and Holiday Ornament.

All registered guests will receive a Clay Play Workshop Kit and hands-on, step by step instruction. This workshop is appropriate for adults and children ages 3 and older with all abilities and skill levels. First, guests will tour Our Sensory Farm and the Adventure Forest to collect and gather inspiration before setting up at a workstation. Maggi will provide simple instructions while our team of Clay Play volunteers provide additional individual support. Once the pieces are assembled, workshop participants can choose from a variety of glazes to further customize their Nature Plate and Ornament.

After the workshop, guests will leave their artwork with Maggi so that it can be fired in the kiln at the studio. Pieces will be complete and ready for pickup (at OSF) or shipping approximately 3 weeks after the event. We are so excited about this new workshop series and are here to help in any way we can. Please email us at with any questions.

Situated on three beautiful acres, Our Sensory Farm is located in southern Chesapeake and offers animal encounters, nature trails, playgrounds, swings, sensory stations, games, playhouse, and so much more! Our mission is to make a difference in the lives of others with all abilities by creating a safe, accepting space that encourages our guests to be their authentic selves while connecting with nature and their neighbors.
