SEN Schools visit Eastnor Pottery

Sarah Williams works with student from Alderman Knight Special School at Eastnor PotteryClay is such an accessible material, whatever your age or ability you can make your mark.

Its universal appeal makes it an excellent material for children with additional educational needs to work with and express themselves.

In the week leading up to half term we were fortunate to welcome students from two local special schools to our studio.

Sarah has been working with Alderman Knight School in Tewkesbury to create a Cheshire Cat tile panel and although most of her sessions have taken place at school, staff agreed it would be beneficial for the students to create some of the tiles at Eastnor Pottery.

Two days later we entertained students from The Vale of Evesham School. Each year Ms Barton drives her class of between 10-14 students over the boarder to make coil pot mugs with us. These are then fired, glazed and collected by the whole class in time for Mother’s Day – the perfect handmade gift.
