I’ve been working with the young people at Teme Valley Youth Project on an arts project called Yart.
As well as experiencing all the usual benefits associated with working with clay, the participants made these fantastic ceramic leaf tiles incorporated into a graffiti mural painted on the outside of the youth centre.
I reckon the effect looks pretty good and one I’d definately like to explore further.
Great to be back at Hatherton Children’s Centre in Walsall.
The group of parents chose to produce coil-pots again having been inspired by their fired results created on my last visit. I’m always astounded how such a humble making technique can be interpretetd in so many different ways. How good is this VW beetle?
These exquisite clay tiles were made by a Jeweller, who also volunteers as a youth worker at TVYP in Wigmore. The young people we are working with are making a collaborative tile panel in the shape of a tree destined to be hung on an exterior wall at the Youth Centre.
On a very sunny Tuesday last week a group of parents from Washwood Heath Nursery School visited the pottery. Their mission, to investigate ways of communicating numeracy through working with clay.
The session was booked by the incredibly creative Nursery School ahead of its annual maths week. The visitors made simple 3d shapes, counted clay balls and measured clay coils, all very simple techniques designed to be shared at home with their children.
There was also an hour or so after lunch for everybody to take turns on five potter’s wheels. Great way to round up a brilliant clay session.
