University of Wolverhampton Graduates helping Eastnor Pottery workshopFour kick wheels, three lovely graduates from The University of Wolverhampton and hoards of families of enthusiastic potters.

We were hired by Wolverhampton Art Gallery to offer drop-in potter’s wheel tasters to celebrate the launch of the Craft Open West Midlands exhibition.

Eastnor Pottery teaching the art of throwing on a wheel at Wolverhampton

I had the privilege of working with the same students back in March when we offered a similar activity at the Launch of Big Ceramics. The girls from the Uni were fantastic and made participants feel relaxed and valued as they sampled the delights of the potter’s wheel, in most cases for the very first time. A career in workshop facilitation beckons!
