Axe Valley Community College hosts a jug making workshop with acclaimed artist Amanda Popham
Acclaimed local artist Amanda Popham held a workshop for ASPIRE students at Axe Valley Community College.
She showed youngsters the techniques used to work and mould clay into creative jugs.
Some of the students had never worked with this material before and learnt very quickly how to master the art of using water and moulding with their fingers to produce a smooth and professional finish on the sculptures.
Once the pieces are fired and dried they will be ready for the painting workshop after Easter.
