Our first sold out date night event, everyone was keen to give pottery a go, and why not! Making things out of your bare hands is something that appeals to most people.
It was so great to see how everyone started off with the concept of a pinch bowl and it evolved from there. We had Mike Jagger lips, bowl collections, glue holders, pots with lids, bird feeders, key holders and the list went on.
The clay pots will be fired and glazed over the next two weeks and then delivered to their creators to take up residence in their homes.
Our pottery teacher mixed it up by providing a bag of random inspiration to help get the creative ideas flowing (or not), and half way through dared people to mix it up by swapping their piece with their partner. This produced some great laughs and some stiff competition within the couples.
Lots of laughs and people stayed past the end of the class to perfect their pieces, or just to stay and chat.
It was lovely being in the Quarry Arts Centre complex, such a relaxed and great environment to get messy and creative.
