Welcome to our online donations page.
Art in the Forest is a thriving ceramic centre and social business reinvesting our profits back into our foundation, the Light from Africa Foundation. We provide free clay classes to children from disadvantaged communities and schools, giving them access to art and creative expression. We also run a mentoring programme, which along with Anthony Shapiro produces our Forestware Range that provides training and mentoring opportunities for the ceramicists of the future.
Pottery and art classes are more than just fun for children, developing creativity has been shown to have far reaching positive effects on their intellectual development, personal well-being and resilience. Additionally it has been shown that ceramics give a child the unique opportunity to learn through non-verbal stimuli, develop hand-eye coordination and fine-motor skills.
Thank you for visiting our site to understand more about the Light from Africa Foundation. We are very excited about the impact we have on our children and look forward to launching our Art in the Forest Claymobile soon.
