Clay was the best part of the holiday program for me. I’ve never made anything with clay before and I found that this project really taught me how to work with my hands in a gentle way. On the first day we made our clay pots and then painted them with bright colours. The next day we made clay self-portraits, with scarves, hats and gloves! Our facilitator Lwando gave us wonderful ideas to make objects that we could use in everyday life. Much of what we did for the three weeks of the holiday program was also learning how to create things that could be made from recycled objects.
