Residency at Lyndon - Week 2

In November I returned to Lyndon to run another week of workshops with the year 8s and year 10s. I had a lovely week, the kids were so receptive and really really interested in the ceramics. I get the impression they've not had much experience with clay.

We did experimental mark making in clay, pressing, embossing and then eventually tile and slab building. Over the week we made hundreds of pots! I can't wait to go back in a couple of weeks and see them all fired and beautiful.

With the year 10s i was helping them with free machine embroidery. They were embroidering shells as part of one of their GCSE projects.
