This Monday, the 11th of February, the year 12 VCAL students went on a trip to Mr Rojo’s pottery studio. We arrived at 1.30 and Mr Rojo got straight into showing us and teaching us about different clays and different ways of firing pottery.
Mr Rojo also showed us how to make small animals and a pot and a milk jug on the pottery wheel. He also showed us his finished work in pottery and painting. We learnt a number of new terms such as; slip, throwing, biscuit firing, glaze firing and more.
We had a great day and learnt lots of new things.
