THROWDOWN:

The Sentinel - - NEWS - Pic­ture: Mal­colm Hart

As­pir­ing pot­ters at­tended a work­shop at Valen­tine Clays in Fen­ton. Stu­dents on the one-day course started by knead­ing the clay, and were then shown how to cen­tre the clay on the wheel, cre­ate a cylin­der and how to change this into vases, mugs etc. Jon French, the pot­ter who took the work­shop, spent 29 years work­ing for Wedg­wood and now runs his own busi­ness at the Mid­dle­port Pot­tery. Above with Jon are stu­dents Caro­line Bag­ga­ley and Val Bourne.
