Crafty students threw caution to the wind and turned their hand to throwing pots in a fun session with an important message.
Over the summer holidays a series of arts, crafts and heritage workshops have been organised for youngsters aged seven to 14 upstairs at The Birchcliffe in Hebden Bridge, which opened earlier this year.
Sally Darlington, Pennine Horizons’ access and learning officer, helped the children to make simple pots out of clay, keeping alive traditional skills which might otherwise be forgotten.
“We are going to offer it as a schools project eventually, along with an archaeological dig and some app building for trails,” she said.
The children had enjoyed the event, she said.
Over the holidays the workshops, funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund, have also shown youngsters how to make a pinhole camera, an automaton and a local landscape out of felt.
The final holiday session is on Monday, when there will be a book-making session (10.30am to 2pm).
