Resources from The Talking Shop

scrapbook iconAlex Shimwell Professional Potter Talking Shop Classes

As part of the Transformation Fund Learning Revolution, The Talking Shop Project was formed by Staffordshire University Faculty of Art Media & Design.

The Talking Shop Project wanted to reach people in unusal ways and settings, so we enlisted a group of local artists to deliver their skills to the community, allowing ordinary folk the chance to do something different and creative.

Alex has been teaching the community to throw a pot. Using a potter's wheel in this video, he shows us how to make a pot using traditional techniques.
