You’ll have to take my word for it but under the bubble wrap there are three wonderful tile panels made by the whole of Badsey First School near Evesham Worcestershire – An apple, pear and plum tree all fired, glazed, mounted on boards and ready for dispatch.
Each child in the school contributed a leaf or fruit and the finished works are destined for permanent display in the school playground.
As soon as they are installed I’ll post a photo on our website. Watch this space!
Clay is such a sticky material – particulary if you’re sporting a pair of brand new Doodles.
Spent a morning working with parents and young children on behalf of Apple Vale Children’s Centre. The sessions took place at Badsey Village Hall with all the youngsters experiencing the potter’s wheel – many for the first time.
Back in the Summer term Jon visited Evesham Nursery with film-maker Elena Yung. They spent the day filming the children exploring the clay. This is the first of a short series of films recording the young peoples response to the potter’s wheel.
Spent a warm but enjoyable morning working with a group of children at Worcester Museum & Art Gallery.
They have a ‘Legends’ exhibition on at the mo and we used this as inspiration for the clay work. Artist Kate Brooks has built a huge dragon in one of the spaces vacated by the Library to celebrate the the local legend of Maud & the Dragon. We took a look at the giant monster before returning to the activity area to make our very own clay castles and dragons.
