Child has a go on the potter's wheel at Festival of Cultures at King EdwardsOne of the many highlights of my workshop year is the annual pilgrimage to King Edward VI School in Aston for their Festival of Cultures extravaganza.

I get to share my clay skills with the students throughout the day in a series of pottery workshops and then, in the evening, the whole place becomes a vibrant celebration of arts, culture and food from around the globe. Hundreds of parents and friends stream through the gates to enjoy the fare and entertainment. Great stuff.

I was based in the art room, offering visitors a go on the potter’s wheel.
