Annemarie, Corrie and myself had the opportunity the other day to try out some prototypes with the Nursery children from Loxdale Primary School.
Annemarie presented the children, staff, parents and volunteers with these rather lovely hayballs as well as the chance to make lengths of hay rope.
Corrie had been busy in her studio making a set of exquisite wooden tools and combes for the children to explore in the sand.
The session was part of the brilliant and ongoing Happy Museums project exploring Art Galleries & Museums and well being. We three artists have been working with Craftplay at Bilston Craft Gallery in Wolverhampton.
Ceramic play things and clay stamps for the Under 5′s developed as part of my involvement in the inspirational Happy Museums project facilitated by Craftplay and Craftspace at Bilston Craft Gallery in Wolverhampton. These prototype pieces are currently being road tested and put through their paces by the children, staff and parents at Loxdale Primary School. Can’t wait to hear their verdict!
I worked with approx. 80 youngsters in one evening last week. Two groups in two hours made up of Rainbows, Beavers, Cubs & Brownies.
The clay fun occured in Crowle Village Hall in Worcestershire and the children made a wonderfull array of pinch-pot creations.
Loving the ‘Christmas Owl’ and white rabbit.
Having an inspiring and wonderful time working with the Ikon Gallery and several of Birmingham’s Nursery Schools. Parents, children and staff from Lillian de Lissa, Cheeky Monkeys, David Gretton Nursery Schools and Poppits Playgroup have been working in clay inspired by the paintings of Hurvin Anderson, an international artist originating from Birmingham. Hurvins giant canvases are on show at the Ikon Gallery untill 10th November 2013.

If you’d like to see the sculptures in the flesh so to speak, take a trip to Ledbury High Street and check out the Dry Cleaners window after October 1/2 term. After they’ve been exhibited there, we’ll be handing them over to Brightstripe as an exhibition resource.
