Putting my new-found potting skills to the test!

I took my new found beaker-making skills with me when I last visited FitzHerbert Primary School in Fenny Bentley.  Focussing the children on a particular task – in this case making Bronze Age beakers by making two thumb pots – really worked.  The results were very rewarding, both for me as the facilitator of the session and for the children.  If we’d had more time it may have proved useful to try two different techniques, coil-potting and thumb-potting (is there such a phrase?), to see which works the best – real experimental archaeology!
