Acwsalcta SEAS program visits Creekside Studio in Hagensborg

Esther Hans is all smiles as her Grade 7 Acwsalcta students scramble about digging clay from a deposit at the mouth of Mill Creek after a short hike from  the end of Saloompt Road.  The outing, with local potter/sculptor Ernest Hall, was part of the school’s SEAS program (Supporting Emerging Aboriginal Stewards), coordinated by Esther and designed to develop an appreciation of the resources present in the natural environment. On this outing, students collected raw clay which they took to Hall’s Creekside Studio and converted into handbuilt pottery pieces. The experience was integrated into their study of soils in their science class, and their journal entries became part of the work in their English class.
