I love my periodic visits to Marlbrook Primary School in Hereford. The children and staff are so welcoming and value greatly the opportunity to work with clay.
The day whizzes by in a whirl of energy and enthusiasm and the pottery results are pretty amazing too.
Get a load of these Buddhas made with YR6 on a recent visit.
I was fortunate to spend x4 very creative and messy days in January at St Benedicts Infants School in Birmingham, working with the lovely children and staff in the Nursery.
We explored soft clay on the potter’s wheel as well as fired ceramic sculpture specifically designed for the U5’s to play with.
Here’s a clay pirate transformed from a bag of clay. Click here for some more lovely clay creations made by the children.
Having worked with the morning Nursery group before the Christmas break, it’s now the turn of the PM potters at Ledbury Primary School Nursery to work with clay.
One of my favourite introductory activities is unloading a 12.5kg lump in the middle of the table, stand well back and just see what the clay hungry youngsters do.
Loving the aesthetics of this finger deep texture created by many grabbing hands.
Just before Christmas Sarah spent a creative morning at Bosbury Primary school working with YR6 exploring ancient Greek pottery. Here are the fired results of their creative endeavours.
You get to meet some talented staff and parents when you work with as many schools as we do.
Whilst working at Lickey Hills Primary in Bromsgrove making collaborative pots with 260 children in a day (I kid you not!) we were photographed by a professional photographer who just happened to be a parent at the school.
