Scotsman Flash in Wigan was the base for this nature inspired workshop.

Community Polymer Clay Workshops....

I have run community based workshops for over 20 years. They are run on a 'drop-in' basis... children with their parents come along to a nature session run by the Wildlife Trust and then they come along to a creative workshop help in the great outdoors! (Weather and gazebo permitting!!)

On the Lancashire Wildlife Trusts bug hunt, the children made creative clay critters!

I work for this community arts organisation here in Sheffield in a variety of ways, sometimes using my clay skills or often making art with a whole host of other materials.

Here are a few images from recent events

Toad Abodes at Plot 44 - Sheffield

This childrens event was held at a community allotment in Sheffield. 

 

We had great fun making these cute little toad houses from old plascit containers, plaster of paris and pebbles and rocks. It was a beautiful sunny day too. There were lots of other activities that the children could get involved with. The next event there is on the 24th September 2017

Wardsend Cemetry and Watercliffe Meadow Primary School Local Heroes Project - Sheffield

This workshop linked an old abandoned cemetry with a local primary school. The cemetry was commemorating it's 160th anniversary and they wanted the children to remember the 'local heroes' that were buried there. They made the clay figures and also told us what they would like to be when they grow up. Their work was then displayed at the 160th Anniversary Open Day. Children and their parents came to look at the art work and then made some wild flowers that were found in the area.
