Kemsing care home residents try their hands at pottery


sheila-hood-enjoys-mc8ffafWhen a new resident with a love for pottery moved into The Dynes, activity coordinator, Kay Hawkins, decided to invite the residents to try their hand at a new activity and get crafty with clay.


Gathered in the lounge at the Kemsing care home on Thursday 23rd September, the group of residents enjoyed a relaxing morning sipping cups of tea and making wind chimes out of clay.


The residents had a great morning rolling out their clay and using several different shapes to create a varied assortment of wind chimes, which once finished, will hang in the home’s garden.


The following day, the residents gathered together again to paint and finish their beautiful handmade wind chimes, decorating them with plenty of bright colours.


Kay Hawkins, activity coordinator at The Dynes said: “We always have lots of activities going on here at The Dynes and we love to try new things, so when our new resident mentioned he loved pottery, we thought we’d give it a go!


“As well as the pottery session, we have enjoyed flower arranging and making gingerbread men, next week we are looking forward to a visit from some therapy ponies!”
