Following on from our Pottery workshop, we have been experimenting with air dried clay for our residents so that we have more ‘instant results’. Air dry clay is much easier to work with than traditional clay and it self harden’s in the air rather than having to ‘bake’ the pottery in a kiln.
Pottery is a calm environment where residents can show there skills in clay making. It is very therapeutic and residents are free to put there own stamp on what they create. We take ideas from everyday life and turn them into individual pieces of art. Residents love to see the finished article. It gives them great motivation and satisfaction.
