In our Creative Skills Stations participants create hand crafted pottery and specialty ceramics. Our staff offers guided instruction that assists and encourages our participants to be actively involved in learning. They shape and pattern the pottery pieces from clay slabs at the Clay Station and glaze the bisque pieces at the Glazing Station.
Our staff and volunteers simplify and modify each step of the creative process based on individual needs. We demonstrate and reinforce each step allowing adequate time and encouragement for their participation in the process.
Coventry’s main goal in the Creative Skills Area is not about product but about building skills and confidence through consistent instruction, encouragement, expectation and reinforcement of each participant’s abilities. They learn to create beautiful and unique pottey pieces.
