Students at a Suffolk secondary school have been learning the art of ceramics thanks to a star of The Great Pottery Throw Down.

Bury St Edmunds-based ceramic artist, Henry Moore, visited Sybil Andrews Academy on Monday to lead a special workshop for Year 10 students.

Henry, who appeared on the Channel 4 show earlier this year, said he was delighted with how the students grasped the techniques involved.

He said: “I enjoy teaching ceramics in schools and I was delighted to be invited to Sybil Andrews Academy.

“I taught the students how to make a cylinder and dome and then they had the chance to design them individually.

“They all really impressed me with how engaged they got with the project and how much they enjoyed it.”

Art teacher Elizabeth Pearson said: “We were delighted to welcome Henry into the school and we would like to thank him for giving up his time.

“It was a great experience for our students who were able to use his expert advice to create some fantastic pieces.”
