Each participant is invited to be a creative as they like with this project, to test out colour combinations, use pieces of crockery as well as tiles; some women were using pebbles and small pieces of mirror. I love seeing how creative the women can be, once they have gained a few skills and a bit of know how ….
Next week most will finish the design and sticking part of the project and I will show them how to grout and finish the mirrors off.
We had a couple of new people join today who had not been able to make it to the first session. It can be quite hard to join a group after it has already started as it may feel as if friendships have begun and of course students already have a few skills up their sleeves! It takes a little courage to step into an existing group – I think most adults feel that. In these groups we spend a bit of time learning eachother’s name and making sure that everyone feels they have a place in this creative community.
