ADOPT A POTTER CHARITY – David Melville fundraising
Many universities no longer run ceramic courses and there is a demand for them. The Adopt a Potter charity help place young people with experienced potters in the workplace. An ambitious project is to start aÂ â€śClay Collegeâ€ťÂ in Stoke on Trent where young people can be taught by experienced working potters.
David says, â€śI appreciated the training I received in the late 70â€™s which has enabled me to make my living as a potter for over 35 yearsâ€ť. Davidâ€™s pots can be seen onÂ www.potteryman.co.uk.
