Printing in Clay

We had another tentative start with our session at the Acute Stroke Unit in St Helier...this week the Men's Tennis Finals were on top of the menu. However, we found some wonderful participants who enthused beyond measure, enthralled by the beautiful marks flowers make in clay. The activity also supported fine motor skills and engaged the brain in news ways for most participants...all good stuff when rehabilitation is key to recovery. We will be cutting these into varying sized circles, bisque firing and then colouring with Mason Stain washes and firing again at a higher temperature to give the final work that will be installed in the ward. Being busy, we struggle to remember to take photos!

TODAY Assemble "Sutton-By-Sea"

Today we will be assembling the beach installation in the Community Space at Sutton Library, unfortunately it has not been possible to set it up outside. Please join us to day from 12 pm until 5pm, drop-in any time. From 4 to 5 we will have a little Biodanza party. And try to implement some of these UN Environment recommendations, by 2050 there will be more plastic in the oceans than fish!

Summer Sun Baked Potters

Thanks to heavenly intervention (the weather was stupendously fantastic), brilliant organisation by St Helier Music and Community Festival and the lovely community who attended we had a brilliant day working with families and kids making more ceramic vessels for The Fuchsia Project! I must compliment this dad on the delightful flower he made!
