On monday I had my first lesson on a pottery wheel and it was fab! Our teacher had organised a lunch party for all her pupils and before we ate, she taught us how to throw (ie make a pot on the wheel). It was very messy and there were a few duds, but I managed to make two pots that I liked and I've decided to do more classes and try and hone my skills. I love the immediacy of it all, compared to doing a coil pot where the process is a lot slower. We then we had to display our favourite pot which was then judged by everyone else while we drank wine and ate lunch.
