Today I was not in studio! I was a stall holder at the Ballarat Health & Lifestyle Expo at the Ballarat Mining Exchange. Organised by from The Health Academy, the expo showcased businesses across Ballarat whose business focus values health and wellbeing.
As regular readers my know my “other” business is ClayMotion where i offer ceramic classes and workshops, professional development, corporate teambuilding, kids birthday parties and an array of other services. I also sell ceramic supplies, which I ship internationally.
So today I was at the expo with my ClayMotion “hat” on promoting the health benefits of playing with clay… which, if any of you have experienced will know the benefits of! Being a tactile and plastic medium clay lends itself to subconscious expression as well as being an artistic medium, therefore it is a great material suitable to everyone.
As part of the days fun I was offering free pinch pot making to anyone who wanted to get their hands dirty – most were kids with a few adults having go. Everyone was able to take their pinch pots home with the advise of their fragility (being unfired) and that they were to be shelf decorations. Unfortunately I was VERY busy and didn’t get time to take many photos!
The expo ran from 10am to 4pm, so by then I was almost hoarse and badly in need of an ice cold beer (it was a hot day in Ballarat, for a change also), so after my partner helped me pack up at the end of the day off we went to a local bar …. hope everyone has had a great Sunday 🙂
