Dear group,
Below is a person from my preschool group. She is from the
Philippines. As you can see she has access to all the natural clay
resource she can haul out of there. I know of some books, Mud
works etc. I need other resources to send to her. I have some
lessons, you know beginning lessons on pinch/coil pots and hand
building, beads and the wall pockets but can you think of anything
else. I also have a few web sites but does anyone have a web site on
clay for pre-6th or so
prefer 3 years to 5 years as she is a preschool teacher, send it my
way please. I think it's funny that they think clay is dirty.(LOL);D
