15 Days in Clay
This exciting project was originally set up to give small groups of adults with learning difficulties, and disabled adults in the Poole and Dorset area, the opportunity to be taught ceramics to an advanced level enabling learners to develop as artists in their own right.
The project aims to inspire and nurture the creative development of individuals in a professional ceramic environment. It has provided new opportunities for self-expression, confidence building and personal growth through the accessible medium of clay. Free taster sessions are offered at the start of the project to make sure this is something each individual wishes to access.
The quality of the work produced is of the highest standard enabling individuals to exhibit and to sell their work around the country. All students go through a process of assessment, with the possibility of accreditation.
15 Days in Clay take place three days a week in the Pottery Pavilion at Holton Lee

Studio 2 Printmakers
Studio 2 Printmakers provide a professional creative experience which offers participants an opportunity to engage with the process of printmaking. For more details contact Helen Brasher on 01202 511966 or email@example.com The workshop was founded in 2005 by professional artists Helen Brasher and Janet Smith to promote the work and achievements of artists with learning disabilities. Visitors are welcome to our Studio on Fridays between 10.00 a.m. and 3 p.m. - please phone to avoid disappointment.
This service for disabled people aims to provide opportunities for environmental discovery and to bring people closer to wildlife and the natural world. It is also about using that contact with nature as a source of inspiration for activities that are fun, creative and educational. You can visit Holton Lee for the day and in the morning use scientific equipment to get closer to wildlife. We have digital microscopes to view miniature worlds and special cameras that can film animals secretly at night. You can visit the bird hides and use our binoculars and telescopes or follow the wheelchair trail through a variety of habitats. Capture insects and bugs and find out more about their bizarre life cycles. In the afternoon, under the guidance of your tutor, work in artists’ studios or create artworks outside in the grounds using your morning’s environmental work as inspiration.
Out There workshops provide positive benefits to mental and physical health through simply being in quiet green spaces, carrying out satisfying creative activities and shaking off the stresses and strains of life through gaining contact with nature.
