Children go potty at clay-day workshop - 31 May 2010

Sounds interesting, doesn’t it? Well, we can confirm that we had a fabulous time.
On the 28th May, 24 children (6 from each year group) took part in a clay day pottery work shop, run by Mrs. Margaret Brampton, a ceramic artist. The work was inspired by pottery artists Christopher Marvell, Jane Muir, Geoff Fuller and Jenny Southem.
We interviewed Oliver Payne in year 4.
Q. Why did you enjoy the work shop?
A. Because I’m creative and artistic.
Q. What did you learn?
A. How to make clay men in a certain style.
Q. Did you enjoy it?
A. Yes, because my hands got messy.
Q. Were there any certain points to remember?
A. Mrs. Brampton’s talk at the beginning explained how to hollow out the clay men.
Q. Would you do it again?
A. Yes I would if I could.
We all had a thoroughly enjoyable time and are looking forward to collecting our models once they have been fired in the kiln next week.
