Imogen will demonstrate how to prepare, centre and shape your clay. Each potter will have their own wheel for the day. You’ll be guided step by step through the process of making cylinders (cups), before progressing onto bowls. After lunch, another demo of how to make different forms. You’ll be encouraged to work at your own pace, practicing to create your perfect pots!
