Each year we provide two or three work experience placements for local Year 10 students. Pictured above – Valdis attatching the final ‘boat’ tile – destined for Riverside Primary School.

Last week we were joined by Valdis from John Masefield High School in Ledbury. Valdis sampled a whole range of pottery tasks (glazing, kiln packing, and care taking work) as well as supporting Jon in schools around the region.

On his final day, having impressed the team with his confidence and people skills, Valdis led a coil pot birthday party workshop for a gaggle of ten year old girls! Brave lad!
