I’m so lucky to work with people who understand totally the benefits of creative learning. Washwood Heath Children’s Centre in Birmingham is another good example of an educational setting with creativity at its core. They have a talented artist in residence, who works part time on a weekly basis and who I’ve known for a few years through my Creative Partnerships involvement http://www.creative-partnerships.com/

Sarah asked if I could come along and supply a ‘clay provocation’ to excite and inspire both the children and staff. We all had a lovely time playing on the potter’s wheel, sometimes with six or seven children hands-on enjoying a collaborative potter’s wheel experience.
