A group of 10 staff have experimented with clay and glass to produce ceramic art works to hang in their shared office space. The group had to work together to decide on scale and format of the tiles before they started. This process encouraged team building and team spirit. The atmosphere of the workshop was exciting and challenging as they all explored a new medium that some hadn’t worked with before. Sue ran through the possibilities of working with clay to ensure the outcome was a success and each individual was able to draw on their own design talents and hand building skills as they went along. The tiles were then glazed and fired ready to install.
