Pottery course therapeutic

MARGIE Marshall was delighted to go home with a new clay jewellery box after a four-week course at the Warwick Potters Association for Blue Care clients.

She was one of the clients instructed by Sue Creed, Jill Fraser, Pam Wright, Helen Madsen and Deanna Schmidt at the course.

“The clients thoroughly enjoyed it,” Mrs Creed said.

“They are making plans for next year as well.”

Client Ken McCafferty said he also attended the course last year and might come again next year.

“I enjoyed making cats,” he said.

Warwick Potters Association president Sue Keong said the course was therapeutic as it allowed the clients to take on new skills.

“We offer courses to a variety of people and groups and Blue Care has taken up our offer in the past two years.”
