Summary

Each term learners create pottery based on nature, culture and diversity awareness. We use Air Dry Clay and teach coiling and smoothing, pinching and the use of templates. Learners have created African and Aboriginal pieces and taken part in sustainability projects, creating colourful coral reef frames, while learning about global warming. Classes are customised to suit the creative ability of learners. You will learn to maintain houseplants, re-pot and propagate succulents and other beneficial plants and vegetables, all while learning about the health benefits of plants, the environment, biodiversity and recycling.
