Ceramic handbuilding workshops and presentations at Highschools and primary schools. Suitable from four years old to seventeen.

Amanda Shelsher started her career in teaching as a senior school art specialist and worked in highschools in WA and the UK in the 1990's.
She has noticed since becoming a full time artist that there are many children today who miss out on the opportunity to work with clay. Therefore they don't experience the rewards that come with working with this responsive, expressive, easy sculptural material.

Amanda loves the opportunity to bring to children the joy of working with clay and this has led to several years working in school workshops and invited artist presentations in various primary and senior schools around WA.

Working originally with her own children's year groups since they were four, she noticed a real desire and need for children to work in a three dimensional form and work with a TACTILE medium. Younger children really need this opportunnity to express themselves in ways other than paper and pen. Clay is the most wonderful medium to do this.

The children's results speak for themselves in their wonderful animated figures. With the guidance from Amanda in easy simple stages children from the age of four can create wonderful animals and creatures in their own class room. Children over the years have created possums, frogs,birds, snakes turtles,self portraits,animal chimes.

Amanda can come to your class room or art room and conduct one to three hour workshops.
You don't need a purpose built art room all you need is desks and access to water. Amanda brings tools and boards and clay and fires the work.
