Diploma Project Clay as a Medium for Special Needs
Neelima Hasija

Blind People's Association,

The project brief was to design and plan out a system where blind students can learn to work with clay as a medium of expression and eventually make it a means to earn a livelihood. A new product range was to be worked out with an aim to strengthen their thinking and aesthetic abilities. To develop new and unique methods of pedagogy, information regarding special ability and training along with behaviour and abilities were observed in class. Apart from fun and relaxation the final training programme was designed for use as therapy for the beneficiaries. Training was provided to the co-trainers to be able to continue the course in the absence of the author.
