Went to the south of Oban last night, we were just out for a ride and saw the sign for live music, I turned around and we went down the tiny single track road to The Barn Bar, a great wee place, looks like nothing from the outside but when you get in its great. They said it was to start at nine but well - they were a bit late and so good we ended up being very late!

Knead to learn.
When you work with a very fine clay body like ours you have to learn how to knead the clay properly. I am not sure how many hours we have spent trying to get Nicola to do the style of wedging we use (she is used to bulldog wedging not rams horn shown here), I think she's finally getting the hang of it but it's one thing she's been absolute pants at (I mean not very good at) getting the hang of. I expect bulldog wedging would work just as well but Nx says she wants to get the hang of it so as Robbert the Bruce said - try try try again. (Stop Press - It seems that there is a height issue! the wedging bench is too high for Nx so we will try to fix that, maybe she could wear high heels? No, OK I'll try a step, not so interesting though.)
