A POTTER at the Jinney Ring Craft Centre in Hanbury will put her skills to the ultimate test next Saturday (April 21) when she attempts to create 100 pots in just one day, all for charity.
Nancy Frost is aiming to raise £500 for Dig Deep, an organisation which works with local communities in East Africa to help provide clean water and energy sources.
It is hoped 100 people will sponsor Nancy 5p a pot to support the charity, which her daughter works with.
She said: “This challenge is going to be tough as I’m not a production potter and the most pots I’ve ever thrown in a day before is 25.
“However, I’m determined to do my best and I hope lots of people will drop in to watch my shelves fill as I endeavour to reach my goal of 100 pots in one day.”
Nancy’s challenge is just one of many clay-related events to mark St George’s Day.
Other Jinney Ring potters will be running a free castle-themed ‘Play in the Clay Tray’ activity for youngsters from 11.30am 4pm next Sunday (April 22).
And, also on the Sunday, children will be able to go along to a drop-in workshop where they can try their hand at making crowns and other items relating to the patron saint of England and the dragon. The workshops are £3 per child and the youngsters can take their completed creations home.
“We wanted to mark St George’s day with an event that would allow children to have some fun and get their hands dirty.
“The workshop is guaranteed to appeal to budding knights or damsels and we’re looking forward to creating lots of mini masterpieces,” added Nancy.
