We got really stuck in to our Why Not Wednesday this month – stuck into air dry clay to be exact.

To warm up, we started with a few quickfire five-minute challenges; make a monster, a cactus, the animal that represents you and something that makes you happy.

Clay quickfire tasks

For our main creative challenge, we each picked a Hatched colleague’s name out of a hat and were tasked with creating a clay likeness of them.

Luckily, we are all still friends.

It was, aside from hilarious, really interesting to have to think about objects, and faces, in three dimensions rather than the two dimensions we are usually working with onscreen. The clay quite literally added another dimension to our creative thinking, and we now have an office full of little sculptures.
