After several sessions of clay sculpting, residents, Bialik students and Club L’Chaim community members enjoyed an afternoon of celebrating their own creativity, while also admiring the works of others at our Duldig Exhibition.

The highly successful Duldig Studio program, STILL FIRING: SCULPTURE JOURNEYS IN CLAY returned to Emmy Monash in 2019, delivering an expanded creative and sensory program for residents and our community.

The award-winning STILL FIRING program is celebrated for enabling creativity and self-expression among our residents, specifically its ability to involve residents with wide ranging abilities. This year the program engaged not only residents but Club L’Chaim community members and Bialik College students.  This program is unique in its ability to cross intergenerational boundaries as well as physical and cognitive limitations. In fact, some residents had the opportunity to sculpt alongside their grandchildren, making the experience even more meaningful.

With highly skilled artists and professionals guiding them, participants learned new skills and expanded their creative outlet, all while meeting new people and building friendships.

Special guests Patron Pauline Gandel AC and Eva de Jong-Duldig, founder of Duldig Studios attended the exhibition of artwork in December; residents, family members, school children and special guests admired the artworks on display, and left feeling inspired having celebrated the beauty and power of art.

We are extremely grateful for the continued support of Gandel Philanthropy who provide funding to Duldig Studio for this program. The rewards are treasured by all those who take part. We hope to continue this program into the future having seen the positive impact it has on all those involved.
