I wish I could come to your workshop. And I mean that.

Here's one idea for your topic:

you make pots for them that are all exactly alike.

they take the pots and clay and work without access to each other
for a half hour. Instruction "make this pot look like one of yours" =

You bring them back together and see what they did.

That would at least give you a very good "ice breaking" exercise.
And enough examples of technique and oddities to spin off.

Man, I wish I could watch...
