From the Director, Rosemary Swan:


"It is so important that the child has time to play and be creative. Only through this process do the skills for everyday life develop. In over 30 years of teaching pottery I have watched children’s problem solving ability, attention span, creative endeavour, and self esteem increase through their pottery making pursuits."
