First day in Jo L, Zoe O and Maybelle, what a team! and Maybelle's articulate and insightful responses to her work when viewing film captured, she is 7 now and has been in Shallal since she was 2-3 years old.
Then returning artist Jenn Green had 2 days and came back from the first day saying she 'now really understood the value of studio space/time', followed by Anna and Annis, it is always exciting to watch artists extend their themes, develop and progress and this year 'I love their work!'

* What am I like?
Clay and film project with Delpha Hudson at Back Lane West 10-2pm, Tuesday 17th October.
Come and explore movement through clay. You will be invited to make a figurine out of clay that represents you in some way, whilst talking about what you are like. You will be filmed whilst making and talking, exploring what you think you are like.
You will be able to take the clay figurine home and the film of the process of making and talking will be made available if you so wish.
Please bring a plastic bag to take home your clay figure.
More information about the process:
The curious thing about the soft plasticity of clay placed in the hand is that it immediately begs to be squeezed, pushed, pulled, manipulated and molded. These very actions seem to lull and relax the mind so no wonder it is used in therapy. Answering the question: ‘what are you like?’ means that without any prior preparation or thought people can talk about impressions of themselves, whilst impressing a figure, animal or object into the clay.
It is a wonderful way to capture a moment in time. The outcome is the video of the process, as much as the object made. These creations are clay as a metaphor of self, and the process of forming notions of selfhood, one that is personal, shared and purely of the moment. Our self-conception continually morphs, and changes.
What am I like? was a short project idea that I started at Newlyn Exchange a few years ago. Please go to link for an idea of the project: https://vimeo.com/58316308
