BADGER class from Selborne Primary School have been given a masterclass by ceramics artist Nicholas Lees this term.

Mr Lees has recently been awarded a major prize for his work at the Biennale organised by the International Ceramics Museum in Faenza, Italy, where his work was selected from a field of more than 600 entrants from around the world.

He visited the East Hampshire school in the village near Alton and gave the children a clay masterclass to link to their Greek project. The completed Greek pots were described by staff as “amazing” who said the children had “a super time” learning from such an esteemed teacher.

The youngsters from Badgers class at Selborne Primary School are pictured with artist Nicholas Lees and their colourful pots.
