I spent a glorious weekend in Oxford, working with 700 children (not all at once mind you) at Zodiac 09 – a huge festival celebrating Oxfordshire’s Cub Scout movement. The organisers reckoned there were over 2500 children camping out and enjoying an extensive variety of activities. The sun shone brightly all weekend and by 4pm on Sunday we had produced a gigantic collaborative caterpillar. Once it’s fired, we’ll post a photo of the beast on the blog.
Regular workshop participant Vanda, puts the final coat of slip onto her snowman kitchen roll holder. As well as finishing off a few pieces from last time, Vanda produced a multitude of ceramic beads. I dare say the world will be seeing some amazing necklaces and bracelets in weeks to come!
Yet another one! This time it was constructed at Ashton Under Hill pre-school play group. Regular visitors to our blog will know that we’ve been working closely with the group – developing their outside space to play (see blog entries Monday, 23 March 2009 & Thursday, 12 March 2009 ).
What better way to bond together a freshly formed team of marketing professionals than with mud!
Helen Forbes (Senior Category Insight Manager for Carlsberg), brought her colleagues to Eastnor Pottery, for a three hour teambuilding session. The group spent time making a collaborative pot, decorating the surface with self portraits and items symbolising their unique attributes and occupational contribution to the new team.
