This was our first event, and it sure was fun! Bringing a potters wheel to the fest was the best last-minute idea I've had. Once we got spinning, we didn't stop until it was time to pack up. Anyone could try out the wheel for free. I would wedge a piece of clay and center it on the wheel, and then pass my chair to the brand new potter.
There were so many kids, and they had a ball. The young ones were mezmorized, waiting their turns with the patience of a yogi. It was magical, and their parents were thoroughly impressed.
At the end, there were still a few kids wanting to throw, but time was running thin. The finale was a lightning round, working off the same lump of clay, so everyone could get their hands dirty.
