Last Saturday Darren was running a workshop for Maze Hill students who had expressed a desire to practice or improve on areas in which they are having difficulties.
When I (Brigitte) arrived at the pottery, everybody was already hard at work. There was a jolly atmosphere, which is expected when Darren is around, combined with concentration.
Everybody was doing their own thing: making teapots or mugs, pulling handles or simply practising making perfect cylinders.
Darren spent time with each student individually and gave them really clear explanations as to why and where they were going wrong.
At the end of the class, while everybody was packing up and cleaning up, he finished one of his teapots.
