Pottery Workshop
by School Admin - Monday, 17 December 2012, 09:40 AM


Local artist Matthew Jones visited the Art Department for a workshop on the 6th December to work with a variety of groups from both KS3 and KS4 to give pupils an insight into developing a career as an independent artist. Pupils enjoyed the hands on experience of actually 'throwing' a pot as well as being shown a slide show and examples of Matthew's work.


Matthew has a business called 'Ave a go Ceramics' where people can learn more about ceramics in general and he also works on commission basis. We have been lucky enough to enjoy this annual visit over the last couple of years funded by Careers Wales. Our pupils are enthusiastic volunteers who get to keep what ever they make during this workshop and love every minute of this unique experience.
