Making a cup and a badge for each other from clay, was the task of the teenagers and the recycled teenagers today at the Young Hearts Intergenerational group at Croí na Gaillimhe. These will be dried and glazed over the next few weeks and then painted and decorated.
Rolling out the clay, and getting to know each other as this was going to be a gift for the person opposite, we need to ask questions and find out what the other person liked. Once the cups, bowls, vases brooches and badges are dried, we will then glaze and decorate them and present them to each other.
Some of the cups and bowls and vases ready to be taken away and dried

October 8th 2013
Today we met at the Galway City Museum, for a research day.
There were 13 TYs and 7 adults today, we were joined by Hedy , Loretta and Lucy
from Croi na Gaillimhe and Anu and Ramona from the Forge Project.
The weather was very fine and the learners from GCC walked to town.
We started the morning with a trip to the café, which was a very relaxed
and tasty way to start the session. The younger learners were then put into
groups with an adult and the groups divided between Anu, Ramona and I.
They were provided with small sketchpads to record their observations,
ideas and notes and they took many photographs.
