During this workshop you will experience the therapeutic power of clay, and learn how to utilise this fabulous medium to its full effect in your environment.
Children are very drawn to clay, it is easily manipulated and is a natural sensory medium through which they can express themselves. The experience of working with clay has invaluable cathartic and personal benefits as well as being a fantastic creative artistic medium. There is nothing else quite like clay. In art therapy it is referred to as a regressive medium, which means it has a unique ability to bring up memories or feelings from the past.
