Clay Mobile Craft Kit
We’ve a tactile and dynamic project for you this month – to make a white Clay Mobile!
Taking inspiration from how natural daylight shows many tones and subtle differences in shadow on white objects, this project is a lovely one to hang near a door or window, so the breeze catches each flute and creates a gentle motion.
We’re big fans of mobiles, and the way they constantly shift and evolve.
…and we love the texture of air dry clay, especially when it’s been gently sandpapered to create a soft tactile surface.
So we brought them together in this project for you!
Your box includes the materials and tools for the project, with your air dry clay, hanging ring, soft yarn, modelling tools and a clay rolling pin – and the sandpaper to give the final texture.
You’ll just need scissors, a ruler, pencil and a cloth or tea towel to cover your spare clay as you create your pieces.
You’ll roll the clay and cut out the little circles for the mobile, then bind them together into little calla lily shapes, before creating clay beads. Once the clay has dried, you’ll sand your lillies and beads, then make up the mobile.
And as ever, you’ll have step-by-step photo instructions and a video tutorial online to make it easy to follow along.
The instructions also show you how to tier your mobile, so when the breeze catches it, it creates a gentle ripple effect.
If you’ve bought this project, you’ll find your tutorial video below (the password is on the front of the printed instructions in your box!)

Each month, we design a limited edition craft kit for you. It could be macrame, ceramics, book-binding – or something completely different!
Beautifully packaged, your box will arrive full of inspiration and all the materials, tools and instructions to make a complete project.
Inspired by Ordnance Survey maps, this month’s project involves building up these two A5, 3D Topographic Pinboards out of cork, ready to add your inspiration to.
