Potted History: True Colours at The Turnpike, 2018
True Colours based in Leigh, Greater Manchester, support adults with autism and learning disabilities, working closely with their families and carers. During October to December 2018, I collaborated with The Turnpike's learning team to I facilitate a pilot inclusive studio programme comprising of three workshops at The Turnpike.
During these workshops, people from True Colours were supported to visit a pottery exhibition by Lindsey Mendick, from which we then explored pottery and sculpting techniques. The group then created a mixture of traditional pots alongside creative sculptures that explored personal narratives like trains, video games, food and memories.
Members of the group then curated a small display at The Turnpike featuring interpretation.
