Pinch Me! I’m an Artist

Our art classes with local multi-media artist, Marina Beard, are proving to be a real hit with our Residents. Building on last month’s watercolour tuition, the eager students have now moved on to pottery.

Under Marina’s expert guidance, they learned the ancient technique of creating pinch pots. These were then decorated with their own incised designs.

With so many keen bird lovers, the group took great delight in producing some charming, little bird sculptures.

Chatting as they worked, our sculptors were thrilled to learn that the brown clay which they were handling would eventually turn white as it dried. So, it truly was a transformation as the little brown fledglings turned into beautiful white doves.
