so when i saw that their was a local pottery group in town i signed up and i'm so glad i did.
i attend a three hour evening class once a week held at the cutest corrugated iron clad building that was once an old Scout Hall.
now these 'classes' are pretty laid back, with each person working at their own pace on whichever project they choose.
i started off with a simple slab pot. where i rolled a piece of clay to about 1cm thick and cut four rectangular sides and a base before 'gluing' the edges together with a slurry and further strengthening the joins with a clay coil.
i then moved onto making bowls using the pinch pot method.
it really is addictive and i've been busily pinning all things pottery inspiration on pinterest.
i cant wait to start back again after easter break.
have you tried pottery before? is there a pottery group in your local town?
