Pottery

A report written by Michael O’Shea (sixth class):

On the 7th of June we had a pottery class in the hall. The pottery teacher’s name was Margaret. First we made a bowl out of clay and various pieces of fruit, vegetables and loads of other types of food out of clay.
When we had finished making food we had a go of the pottery wheel. On the pottery wheel we each got a wet piece of clay. We shaped the wet piece of clay into a vase.
Some people had strangely shaped vases like Oisin, he made his with loads of curves. I made mine pretty straightforward and it turned out all right. Our teacher also had a go, she made a mess of it first but it turned out good the second time.
The pottery was great fun and was well worth the two Euro we paid for it.
