Our lovely community arts apprentices Aimme and Immy working with Sarah on the final touches of a stunning tile panel made by children, parents and staff at Washwood Heath Nursery School in Birmingham.
Although the practical sessions are of paramount importance and integral to our practice, it’s worth pointing out the value of preparation and after-care we attach to every project.
We reckon for every minute spent working with somebody hands-on, there is at least a minute of preparation and after-care.
This collaboration will be hung on the outside wall of the new Clover Lea Annex building designed for the provision of the under 2’s.
When the temperature plummets into the minuses, mother nature and Jack frost get to work on our windows at the Pottery, covering the paynes with spectacular drawings and effects. Something very art nouveau about this years offering.
There’s something very musical when the swifts and swallows congrigate on the telegraph wires outside the Pottery. Each year, I always consider taking a photo of the birds but never get around to it!
The Pottery looks so nice this time of year, I thought I would take a few snaps of the exterior. The building used to be a domestic dwelling, before being derelict for some 15 years. The previous tennants must have been keen gardeners – when we cleared the weeds we discovered all sorts of plants and hardy annuals that flower year after year.
