The weather has been very hot and dry so it would be easy for it to dry too quickly...
I also had a visit from my neighbour and her two children.
She asked if they could see me making on the wheel... too boring for young ones I thought so I prepared some slabs as well.
They are 9 and 5 years old. The 9 year old managed to produce a little bowl with some help while the 5 year old didn't have the interest or temperament and couldn't reach the pedal anyway.
They enjoyed decorating the slabs while Mum had a go on the wheel -- unfortunately her great expectations were disappointed so I'll have to get her back for another go on her own. (when we can both concentrate).
