53 degree workshop

Last Saturday I ran the ‘hand-building’ workshop at the New School House Gallery. This was a part of 53 Degree North exhibition that to offer the local community to access arts more closely. Although I normally teach people with special needs and I have run the children’s workshop in the past, I was very nervous as this was my first time to run the session to the general public. Thankfully it was a very small group, so I have managed not to panic as I thought I might have. All have made several items out of ‘coiling’, ‘slab building’ and ‘pinching’ techniques during the two hour session. 
Thank you so much for coming Janet, Liz and Chris. Your work will be fired this week and ready for home soon. Many thanks to Robert for organising this. xm

  3. I hope you enjoyed this; I know I love teaching
    adults; I mostly feel as if I am paid to share
    what I know with dear friends! (How lucky is that?)

  4. Thank you all.

    Hi May, Yes, they were brilliant at it. I enjoyed watching them exploring.
