Going potty

We've been really lucky with people helping us out recently.  Play Services, run by our local council, lent us a potters' wheel, one of the mums donated some clay and Saffron, Honor's mum, who trained as a potter, came in to help the kids have a go at throwing pots.

Everyone had a go and guided by Saffron, they were all successful.

We also made pinch pots and coil pots. 

Our run of great help has continued and the pots were fired at Ballikinrain School.  Very kindly, John Lightbody, the Art and Design Teacher there, lent us some glaze so on Saturday the pots got painted.  They are now back off to the kiln to be fired again in time for our exhibition on the 18th June.
