A couple of photos from our ‘Rub a dub dub’ children’s workshop sessions.
The young potters (all 60 of them) made a tub on the potter’s wheel before cramming a butcher, baker and candlestick maker into the vessel.
Our next scheduled school holiday sessions take place in 1/2 term – Oct 26 & 27. Theme tbc.
If you cant wait till then, dont forget we do a fabulous friends and family session @ £20 a head. There are no minimum numbers and the 1.5hr sessions can be booked at a time to suit.
Periodically, I get to work with the New Parents’ group at the St Thomas Children’s Centre in Birmingham.
The opportunity to throw a pot on the potter’s wheel is a valuable experience and one you are never to young to engage in!
A local gig!
having dashed back from a days workshopping in Brum, I found myself on the KS1 veranda at Bosbury Primary School working with an enthusiastic swarm of adults and children. I’d been invited to provide clay workshops as part of the schools family and child ‘working together’ event. The late afternoon sun broke through the clouds and the happy throng, young and old made a collaborative planter, covered in self portraits.
Also providing workshops, the green eyed monster who encouraged participants to make fab flowers from recycled materials.
It was handy working in Birmingham in the build up to my exhibition.
After a day of clay play and messing around with mud at the fabulous St Thomas’ Children’s Center, I was able to whizz up the M6 and deliver several consignments of pots and sculpture – spread over five days.
