This series of sessions we have been looking at nature, plants and flowers, the aim to incorporate our observations into clay, creating tiled wall panels.
The residents explained to the children what their favourite aspects of the garden were, then the children were sent out to collect as many of these things as they could. This was done against the clock, which made it more fun. The residents enjoyed sneaking a few extras onto the list too….Can anybody find a rabbit?
Once back inside they looked in detail at texture, shape, size and smell. Based on these observations they started creating their designs.
