Spinning that wheel...
With memories of the film Ghost - and of interesting objects which I'd made at school and then promptly given to my Mum (thanks Chris - it's absolutely lovely - what..is..it?) - I took myself down to 7 Limes Pottery in Hulme, Manchester for a masterclass on Pottery with the brilliant Wendy.
I was to create a Vase. Or a Pot. Or something to put things in.
Wendy made me feel at ease - I was surprisingly nervous when faced with 'the wheel' but with plenty of one on one with Wendy and lots of reminders to keep my 'elbows down' (terribly flighty arms me) - I grew to love it. An hour later and, after more foot control than Jenson Button, I left - very chilled and the proud new owner of two new bowls - you can actually tell they're bowls and everything!!
A huge thank you to everyone there, especially Wendy. Give it a go! More info here - http://www.7limes.co.uk
This week things step up a gear. I'm doing an army assault course for my weekly challenge. Eeek. Do I need to wear camouflage?! I'm off to get myself some Ivy cuttings for my helmet. Find out how I get on on Friday.
Have a fabulous week.
Here I am - taking to the wheel (ohhhhhhh my love, my darling.... I've hungered for your touch... A long, lonely time)
Look!! They actually look like bowls. So proud.
