Charlotte Stowell works primarily with fimo modelling clay, in assorted colours. The material is very tactile and using a variety of moulds and cutters, children can create three dimensional models as well as simple, flat designs.
Shapes can be embellished with different patterns and details, making decorations and small plaques with lettering, mixing colours together to create marbled patterns.
These activities are a good way to bring patients together as a group; one parent said she felt better and more relaxed after joining in with the group activity. The parents can then introduce the activity at home and continue making artwork with their child or children.
