Creative Health Alliance Project

Sundragon Pottery are delighted to announce that we’ll be working with Coventry and Warwickshire Creative Health Alliance (CWCHA) in these uncertain times. Sundragon Pottery aims to promote enjoyment, skill development and an ongoing enthusiasm for working with clay.

We know, from our own experience and community groups that we have worked with, how joyous and beneficial playing with clay can be. In addition, some of our members have first-hand experience of shielding and are already familiar with the challenges of having to stay at home. For the last month we have been planning every little detail of the clay activity pack, from writing the application to designing the project and the logistics of distribution.

We’ll be working with CWCHA and other local organisations to identify people who may benefit from this facility. We’ve begun to order all the components for the packs and our tutors have been testing what can be done with air dried clay. We’re pretty impressed with what can be achieved – we usually use clay that needs to be fired!

We aim to continue to share the experience of the therapeutic benefits of clay, even while we are not operating like we usually would. Our new ‘normal’ is a takeaway pottery studio. Using air dry clay means that people can experience clay and a finished piece of work without having to rely on access to a kiln. We’re looking forward to seeing the work that is produced through this project, which will be presented in an online exhibition. We’ll be sharing regular updates on the project over the next 12 weeks.

The house was made from a coil cylinder and has a wood grain texture etched into it. The roof is made from a slab that has had leaves pressed into it. Small coils were used to make the vines for the roof. There is a door and two windows on the front of the house. The house is painted with acrylic paints.
