School Visits

 

Dear Sir or Madam,

 

We are a small Pottery situated in Much Wenlock, that has been producing hand-thrown stoneware oven to table ware, garden pots to lamps since 1979. I am writing in the hope that you may consider an interesting proposition.

 

Having been invited by many Craft Fairs over the last few years and more so recently, the response from the general public, especially the children, who could not wait to get their hands on some mucky clay and have a go at making a pot. Many parents also had a go and asked if I went into schools. Yes I do, but not as many as I should like.

 

Several schools have already taken us up on this offer and it has proved enormously successful, with the children responding enthusiastically. It has proved an excellent way of allowing the children to gain experience of working with different educational media, while at the same time providing them with something tangible to take home to their loved ones.

 

We have calculated the cost of this day to be £350.00, which would cover Mike's time, transport, firing and glazing for approximately 3 classes of children, without creating a vast hole in your budget.

 

Should you be interested in the above idea, please do not hesitate to contact myself at the Pottery on the above telephone number.

 

Yours sincerely

 

SHELAGH A. BILL
