13 Apr 2009: Clay IN-SIGHT - Pottery Art for the Visually Impaired at SAVH

Clay IN-SIGHT was an experimental voluntary project under Clay-Street that Alvin undertook to introduce clay art to the visually imapired (VIs) at the S'pore Association of the Visually Handicapped (SAVH). Alvin wonders what visualisation or mental images a VI holds within his heart/mind and whether clay may be a medium through which a VI could creatively express himself/herself artistically.

Thankfully, a team of volunteers responded to the project and stepped forward to help guide the VIs in this interesting clay art workshop.

Next clay workshop at SAVH: 18 May 2009.

Our wish: to hold a mini exhibition featuring clay creations by the VIs before Christmas 2009.
