The Inclusive Create in Clay courses have been designed to teach and explore all things clay in a calm and relaxed environment regardless of age or ability! Starting from learning about design, colour and form to the very nature of clay; the way it is sculpted, the different techniques that can be used to do so, forming clay at the potter’s wheel.
Each class will see students working with various tools, textures, media and techniques in the creation of their clay. The course is a wonderfully supportive environment for students to learn in. Parents, carers and SEN-siblings are encouraged to participate with students who require 1-on-1 support.
While the outcome of finished pieces helps motivate students, our focus is on engaging everyone in the process while having fun in a relaxed, informal and inspirational environment. Students are encouraged to select pieces for further development. This approach removes the pressure to succeed that children and young people may sometimes experience, which can lead to a sense of preciousness or impact their self esteem. We also encourage good studio practice so that students become aware of risk assessing and maintaining best practice, including tidying up and taking responsibility for their work.
This course presents a great opportunity for students to build a sense of character while exploring their creativity and allowing free rein to give physical form to their imaginations. All of this is facilitated through a contemporary thematic curriculum which teaches observational skills and hones young inquisitive minds, while using the fun, hands-on and engaging medium of clay and all of the awesome creative outlets that it inspires.
