Creating pottery is known to be therapeutic, allowing for self-expression and self-discovery while offering stress relief and relaxation. When working clay, we have the ability to connect our minds to our hands, creating the sense of synergy between our mind and body.
Art Therapy: Journal of the American Art Therapy Association states, “clay-work makes possible an entire non-verbal language or communication for the creator, through which his or her mental realm, emotional life, and primary object relations can be expressed.”
No pre-requisites are required.
Maximum of 8 participants.
In this workshop, participants will explore the possibilities of handbuilding clay. This method of clay creation focuses on using your hands and other tools to build. Techniques such as coil, pinch, and slab building are used in the making processes of both functional and sculptural works.
