Children love to play with mud. It is a great experience to shape in a free way or just feel the soft and wet material, that changes by your own force and the movements of your hand and fingers. For child developement this haptic experience is quite important.
A project with a really beautiful outcome and quite a simple fabrication are these handmade necklesses out of clay perls. No matter of imperfection, each jewellery is a charming unique piece, handmade for mum by children from the age of 4 years already.
This is a project for Kinderinsel Hombroich, but I also offer the same workshop in my atelier in Cologne or Arles.
