Wild Clay Wednesdays
At Stover Country Park, Newton Abbot
For children & adults.
These sessions run every Wednesday during the school holidays* and are popular with families. As a group we follow the hidden clues and traces to seek-out and discover deposits of Ball Clay. Then we use hand tools to dig quantities of the clay and make art on site from the earth itself. Emphasis is placed on clay's transformative qualities. As a material clay is tactile - it appeals to the senses, these qualities become more distinct when outside in nature. We learn how Ball Clay came into existence and what makes it so special. Participants may choose to create ephemeral artworks which disintegrate slowly back into the earth. Alternatively, they may take their work home with them, as a lasting momento of their wild clay encounter.
Sessions are two hours long. They start and finish at the Discovery Centre, Stover Country Park main entrance.
* Except Christmas/New Year when the clay is in hibernation.
