I split my Tuesday between two Birmingham Children’s Centres in the city. Surestart Soho was my first port of call. It was the first time I’d worked at the centre, so I introduced myself to the families by way of an interactive potter’s wheel demonstration. The resulting pot turned into a collaborative spider sculpture with all the participants modelling an eight-legged beastie to go onto the piece.

Once I’d packed up, it was a quick dash across town to the St Thomas Centre, for their popular ‘Stay and Play’ session.
