BADGER class pupils at Selborne Primary School have had the chance to work with ceramics artist Nicholas Lees.

Mr Lees was 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 school to give the East Hampshire schoolchildren a clay masterclass to link to their Greek project.

The completed Greek pots were described by staff as “amazing” and the children had “a super time” learning from Mr Lees.
