A couple of months ago, my team at work had an away-day at Jinney Ring craft centre in Hanbury. It’s a lovely little place with duck ponds in the garden and artisan workshops.
We were there for a pottery workshop. It was a mixture of hand building ceramic tiles and wheel work pots.
My thrown pots were a bit messy, but they did survive the kiln and make perfect cactus trays!
I also made a handful of tiles to be used as coasters. Some of these had images stamped into them, and I pressed branches and leaves into others. The leaves/branches burn away in the kiln resulting in a neat imprint.
