The benefits of modelling
Clay modelling is a fun art activity that everyone can enjoy but, from an educational perspective, it's especially effective in helping children develop their creative faculties and important motor skills such as hand-eye coordination.
Additionally, people of all ages can use modelling or sculpting clay to develop and expand concentration levels, expressing themselves in a constructive and creative way. The therapeutic benefits of modelling may also act as a welcome antidote to the many stresses and anxieties of our fast-paced, modern lives.

From kids through to the professional modeller, there are so many types of modelling clays and pastes available, suitable for both oven-baking and air-drying, as well as liquid clay and paste for papier-mâché.
