Fun with clay for would-be sculptors
Rhodes as part of her art-teaching qualification. She has also spent 10 years in an academic post at Westerford in the Western Cape, and a further 10 years in business public relations.
Her workshop is at her home, and is under cover but on a deck, perfect during summer and cosy during winter.
Her students are placed in one of three classes: toddlers (Clay Play), youth (Clay Club) and adults (Clay Café), and students are allowed to join the class they think is most appropriate to their level of skill and understanding.
“The toddlers love to play in the clay and have produced some really nice pieces,” Averbuch said.
“The adult class is more social, and many members seem to use it as a form of therapy.”
Averbuch has a new class starting tomorrow (Friday) and there are a few places left. So, if your creative side is restless, why not give Cutie Fantastic a call on 082-841-0790 or e-mail
