Flying Start @ Redruth Do Clay Pottery!

Flying Start @ Redruth Do Clay Pottery!

The pre-school children at Flying Start @ Redruth had the exciting opportunity to use a real potters wheel and make their very own clay pot!

They were first shown how the pottery wheel works and how to hold their clay… and then given the chance to have a go at their own…

They used their hands to mould the shape before using tools to learn how to remove it from the plate…

You can see from the pictures how fascinated the children were!

Libby and Shannon kindly offered to take the pots to ‘fire them’ in the kilns which bake the pots and finish them, and the children are excited to paint them once they are fully dry!

A huge thank you to Shannon and Libby for this brilliant session!
