Clay is an immediately responsive material. Its tactile quality makes it a perfect material for creative learning. It responds immediately to touch, creating a variety of 3D forms instantly. Access ceramics guides participants to explore a new outcome each week. The use of air-dried clay in our weekly workshops maximises the continuity of the experience for a take home outcome.
Access Drama on Tuesday morning is a lively, creative and active hour. Our dynamic facilitators will engage you with drama, circus and dance. You will experiment with props, costumes and music, we aim to inspire you to true creative freedom no matter your preference.
