Seven wheels a whirling.One of the youngest participants we’ve ever had on our weekend potter’s wheel workshops. Paige grasped the technique very early on and threw some amazing shapes- a glittering career in clay awaits for sure, if it’s something she wants to do!Hannah, Claire and Michelle, all previous potter’s wheel workshop veterans, returned on Saturday to try their hands at handbuilding. The girls coiled a terracotta owl each for their gardens which will be ready in a few weeks time.
