On Saturday 25th March 2017 I attended a Woodwork class at Dartford Adult Education Centre.
It was really enjoyable working with hand tools and producing a box to take home - great for storing some of my crafty bits!
I learned how to make 3 finger and 5 finger joints and also a half housing joint.
I would recommend this workshop to anyone wishing to try out techniques with hand tools.
On Saturday 11th March 2017 my husband and I set off for a pottery workshop by the seaside.
It was an amazing day out at Epple Bay Ceramics and Jenny was a great teacher.
We had time throwing pots on the wheel - I was somewhat miffed to find hubby was much better on the wheel than I was and he produced 3 good pots from 3 attempts and I only managed 2 wobbly things from 4 attempts with the other 2 ending up in the bucket of shame!
However, when it came to hand building I excelled myself completing a bird bath and a slab built vase.
Epple Bay Ceramics is located on the sea front at Westgate. There is a lovely seafront
café within walking distance for lunch.
