Yesterday I was asked to make a record of one of the ceramic workshops at Temple Barn Pottery, the home of two wonderful Potters, Ruthanne Tudball and Amy Brewster. The events was part of Breckland Art Trail and included a ceramic workshop from Amy, a pottery throwing demonstration by Ruthanne and a chock-load of amazing cakes!
Ruthanne works on a momentum, kick pottery wheel and it is the first time I have seen one of these in action. I watched the transformation of a lump of clay to finalised piece and was astounded at the display of obvious skill and enjoyment goes into Ruthanne’s practice. I was also very impressed to see a workshop for adults being run with such excitement and enthusiasm. The group were all having a wonderful time turning their ideas into artwork under the expert guidance of Amy whilst exchanging chatter and sipping tea from handcrafted cups.
