December Potter's Wheel Workshop at Eastnor PotteryThe final pot throwing workshop of 2011 presented a lovely mix of experenced and first time participants.

A couple of friends who had met on an evening pottery class in London used the oportunity to fine tune their technique – both ladies making some significant pieces. Their fellow makers, a mother and daughter combo, hadn’t ever been on the potter’s wheel before but soon got to grips with the rudiments.

At the end of the day we encourage particpants to select their favourite pieces for firing. Once the wheat had been separated from the chaf the remaining vessels looked magnificent and testiment to a productive and rewarding session.

We’ve selected a few of the best photos and made an album on facebook.
