The session always starts with a basket of multi-colored clay,
and it always ends up with a one-of-a-kind little character who becomes the
property of the group - or one special person in the group.
FORMAT: The group, with
Maureen's direction, creates an imaginative clay character complete with its
name and story. Some participants will get to choose and prepare clay, while
others will choose the personality, etc., of the character. Maureen does most of
the actual clay sculpting and building, but the whole group does take ownership
due to their important part in determining the direction of the story.
Among other things, the group will decide the character's
history, the layout of its house, its favorite activities, and, perhaps, even
the contents of its refrigerator. And there are always some unexpected questions
- and unexpected answers. Maureen will continue to sculpt and form the clay all
the while that the story is being woven together. The clay characters generally
do reflect the interests of the individual group, though she tries to steer the
story into non-violent, age-appropriate areas.
Group size: Groups are limited to 35 or less (with younger participants
sitting on the floor). Small numbers allow for the involvement of each
