Guest Blog – Clay Seminar

We are delighted to post a guest blog from Laura MacPhail, who attended the Clay seminar on 13th May 2017.

Laura:  Feeling confident and inspired by the practical Clay Workshop led by Thelma Miller I took a mobile clay kit into Nursery.

The children were curious and keen to experience manipulating the clay for themselves. It was the first time they had worked with clay and there was a lot of discussion around how the clay felt and changed as they worked with it.

The children could connect the clay to mud and the ground and wanted to learn more about where it came from.

They made up stories about their clay creations which they shared with each other.

The children were very engaged, exploring, experimenting and playing with this natural resource.

 

Thank you Laura for sharing your work.
