Can men also make beautiful flowers?

Look at this gentleman. He is really focused. The pink roses on the table were made by him.

The picture shows him making a hydrangea.

Love of handicrafts isn't just reserved for women. Men can do a great job at it too.

Now let's take a look at his finished product.

Isn't it beautiful? Let's all give him a great round of applause!

Alex said his wife loves flowers, so he made it for his wife.

He said he will go home and practice clay art even more. He challenged himself to make more and better projects in the future.

Easter Bunnies

These are the easter bunnies we made. They are actually piggy banks. We can put coins into the back of the egg and take them out from the bottom. From now on we're going to put our coins into the egg. Let's fill it up.

Let's all take the introductory clay art class (rose arrangement)

We've never seen clay art like Simone's. It's really amazing! How is it possible to make such beautiful things out of clay? Today is the first time we've ever worked on clay handicrafts. We are happy and nervous at the same time. We don't know how our projects will turn out. We'll find out very soon.

First, we mix a color of clay that we like. Then we roll the clay into little balls. It's really fun! (But we have our doubts. Can we really make roses out of these little balls? Without using any tools?)

Everyone is really focused.

Using only our fingers, we really did turn the clay balls into petals, and then turned those into roses.

We were the first to finish - we're really happy!

Eventually, everyone else finished.

Each one of the rose boxes looks really beautiful.

Everyone is thinking: what will I put in such a pretty box? Something precious?

How did 3 hours fly by so fast? We really had a great time today.

Let's all take a group picture with Simone. Yay!
