Collaborative clay figures produced by students at King Edward VI Aston School, Birmingham & Eastnor Pottery & The Flying PotterIt was a pleasure to be called back once again King Edward VI School in Aston last week for workshop duties.

During the day I worked with approximately 60 students spread over x3 sessions.

This year the lads produced a terracotta army made up of collaboratively built figures. Ok, granted, the warriors didn’t look like regular soldiers but you certainly wouldn’t want to mess with these recruits!

In the evening families descended in vast numbers to view the artwork and sample some of the performances and activities the students had been engaged in.

Parents bring cultural dishes from around the world for visitors to feast on. The curries are legendary and the whole event is definitely a highlight in the ‘Jon the potter’ workshop Calendar.
