On the 13th May, we held our first Saturday Seminar which explored Froebel’s 20th Occupation, Clay.
The workshop was led by Thelma Miller, an accredited Froebel travelling tutor, and together we explored the special properties of clay, how to look after it and how to make it manageable in a setting. We were encouraged to think about why it is such an important experience for children and how to support and extend their learning.
Feedback from participants was fantastic.
“What a wonderful sensorial experience that connects us to the earth – wonderful for all humans.”
“Loved it! Great to share practical work led by an expert.”
“What a wonderful way to spend Saturday morning- empty head thinking time- who needs a spa!”
