Pottery

 

Pottery inspires the creative genius possessed by every individual . We help create an environment that initiates creative problem-solving. To galvanize young people to enjoy the pride and joy of working and cooperating with others help children express themselves so they can find their own creative paths.

Guitar

The role of the guitar—and music for that matter—in academia has gone through incredible changes in the last 50 years. Today you can learn modern and classical guitar techniques right here on campus, and for those aspiring musicians who think a six-stringer is still out of their reach, think again!

Sculpture

 

Before the written word, Sculpture was one of the ways our ancestors were able to convey their religious beliefs, their views on the world around them and the things that they felt were most important. The Lawrence School, Lovedale has always focused on honing ways in which students tell stories through shapes and characters. We work with Clay, Plaster of Paris and Metals.

Weaving

 

Take two distinct sets of yarn, interlace them together and... Voila! You have your very own towel, napkin or if time permits, your very own bed sheet!

This is one of the crucial survival techniques your child may pursue that we're sure will be an experience he or she will cherish for life.
