This exciting project was originally set up to give small groups of adults with learning difficulties, and disabled adults in the Poole and Dorset area, the opportunity to be taught ceramics to an advanced level enabling learners to develop as artists in their own right.
The project aims to inspire and nurture the creative development of individuals in a professional ceramic environment. It has provided new opportunities for self-expression, confidence building and personal growth through the accessible medium of clay.
The opportunity is now open to anyone who has an interest in working with clay. The courses available are Weekend family Clay sessions, workshops and clay courses available, birthday parties, Hen parties are all catered for. Specialised workshops for individuals with dementia and their carers. Vouchers can also be used for classes if you are a carer eligible for the CRISP take a break scheme. Volunteer opportunities are available, no experience required.
Free taster sessions are offered at the start of the project to make sure this is something each individual wishes to access. The quality of the work produced is of the highest standard enabling individuals to exhibit and to sell their work around the country. All students go through a process of assessment, with the possibility of accreditation.
All tutors and volunteers have many years of experience working with additional needs. 15 Days has been running for 14 years.

We encourage people to make their own choices, build confidence and independence and self worth through working with clay.
