Lets go ” Potty ” in 2019 and get our hands dirty! Its fab to be able to offer to school tours the chance to ” Throw a pot” on our Potter’s Wheels or Paint one of our handmade pottery animals . Working along with schools has been a passion of mine for many years as often teachers don’t get a chance to do a lot of art with their pupils during the year . Our pottery workshops are both educational and very exciting for kids as they become creative with clay . We make full use of our new studio in Glaslough and rotate our groups during the day through use of Glaslough Park and multi sensory garden .
Due to the simple nature of clay it encourages the development of fine motor skills , concentration , creativity and appeals to all the senses . It also offers opportunities to develop language and motor skills and a child’s emotional development .
