In our Pottery Studio, Gloria is currently preparing Mothers Day Tiles for a group of children from our local Rainbows (a programme for 5-7 year olds, linked with Girl Guiding). Her plan is to give each child three small tile shaped pieces of clay with two holes at the top of each. The children will then decorate these tiles themselves with the letters “M”, “U” and “M” and, after the tiles are fired, they can be strung on a cord and given to their mothers as a personalised Mother’s Day gift. These Mothers Day Tiles will have a bit of every child in them.
Below are some photos of Gloria do the prep work, rolling out the clay, cutting them to size and ensuring they are in a good state for the children to do their personalised decoration. Lots to do!
