Lots of Help

Tonight I did a pottery demonstration at St. Michael's church. They set up tents in their gathering room and created a miniature market place like Bethlehem. Complete with arts and crafts for the kids.

It was great fun. The kids enjoyed touching the clay and using the tools. And they had a million questions. After watching me shape a piece, I let each of them take a turn at adding some texture or alternation.

I rarely work in front of other people so it was quite different to have people watching and asking questions. I'll have to do it more frequently. Thanks for visiting.

What room of the church were you in? I think I've been through most of the rooms in St. Michael's, and I remember them having nice carpet. I hope you were careful with all of that mud!
