FINAL CLAY WORKSHOP AT GARDEN MUSEUM

10 May 2018

Love Walk residents recently returned to the Garden Museum by Lambeth Palace for the final session of their clay workshops.

By this stage, resident’s pieces, along the theme of ‘things you can eat from’, had been made, painted, fired, pigmented, glazed and re-fired and were ready to be used for their intended purposes - with a delicious brunch of eggs, toast and jam, in egg cups, toast racks and jam pots that they had made themselves!

The toast rack pictured was made by one of our residents, Brian. The opportunity to do this course encouraged Brian to venture out into the community for the first time in a while, and he has really enjoyed the sessions. His toast rack was amongst a few pieces that were chosen to be in an exhibition at the Garden Museum, to which Brian commented that he was “gobsmacked!” Everyone thoroughly enjoyed the sessions and are looking forward to visiting the exhibition in the summer.
