Clay is a natural material. Working with clay is proven to:

  • Settle and calm

  • Reduce anxiety and stress

  • Develop creativity and problem-solving skills

Creating things is part of being human. Man has been creating things since pre-historic times.

​Working with clay gives us opportunities to:

  • Express ourselves and be heard

  • Achieve - experience pride and fulfilment

  • Improve self-esteem - accept ourselves, our flaws​

Sugi Ceramics promotes the therapeutic, healing benefits of working with clay. Students will be nurtured creatively and be encouraged to explore thoughts, ideas and feelings in a safe, supportive environment.
