I opened my studio in 2013 when I discovered clay, fell in love with it, saw a new potential, and decided to pursue a dream (or bring my manifesto to life). This project would allow me to combine my passion for art making and my desire for social change, however small. I wanted art making to be useful to those who need it most.
I’ve worked with Livewell residents for three years now, three times a week. They have Alzheimers and dementia. I have many special needs children, adults, schools, organisations with all kinds of physical and psychological challenges. We have classes for the children from Patch Helderberg, a centre for sexually abused children, accompanied by their therapist. When circumstance allows, I give classes at Bizweni School for Disabled.
