Boys Brigade EventCheck out these lovely clay creations made by participants at a huge Boys Brigade event in Cheltenham last weekend.

Companys from Swindon, Cheltenham and Gloucester enjoyed a human, table-football game, paper crafts and of course pottery courtesy of yours truly.

Kim's Hen PartyLast Saturday, Gemma enjoyed leading a hen party for Kim and her friends. Despite most of the participants claiming they were not in the least bit artistic, everyone made a fab, unique coilpot design. The ladies then got to paint them there and then – check out some of the photos from the workshop.

Once the group had finished the clay work they retired to the pottery garden to carry on the celebrations (cake & champers) in the glorious sunshine. What a lovely way to celebrate!

Hereford ExpoOn Wednesday last week I booked a stand at the Hereford & Worcester Expo 2012 at Hereford Leisure Centre.
Despite the sharp suits and smart attire, I was pleasantly surprised at the willingness of delegates to try the potter’s wheel. A steady stream of participants throughout the day each made a clay pot on the wheel.
The fantastic results can be seen by visiting our facebook page.
