SAGE has recently finished a 9 month Arts Council funded project with local
ceramicist and art therapist Emilie Taylor. 10 participants worked with Emilie
exploring feelings and supporting each other while creating pottery and
sharing food and stories. The project culminated in an exhibition, and was
accompanied by a film by local film maker Zoe Kinross.
The project was based on the folk tale Stone Soup in which a traveller
encourages villagers to each contribute an ingredient to his pot, resulting in a
delicious soup. From small individual contributions something wonderful was
created. Bringing people together in this project enabled them to support each
other and create together, like the soup, the project has produced results
bigger than the sum of its parts.

The project was made possible by Arts Council funding, which Trustee Clare McManus secured.
Many thanks to Clare, and Emilie, Zoe and the participants for making this a success.
I like the gardening
When the weather is fine
When the grass is green
When the tree is greenish
When the crops are ready to eat
When the sky is clear
When the people are moving and moving
When the sun is shinnying
When the shower is raining
When the butterfly is flying on the flower
When the flower is smelling so and so nice
And that smelling makes my mind smile and smile.
I like when the weather is mild
I like when the people are chatting and chatting again and again
I like when people are moving and moving on
I like when the people are singing and singing and clapping their hands
I like when people are saying together in one voice
We are stronger and stronger now and beyond
And I would like to say
Laugh and laugh and laugh
it so much then you will never think again and again
We are most proud of...
