The joys of coil pottery were discovered at a free workshop.
About 13 people took part in the session held at the Rivergate Centre in Barking thanks to Rivergate Wellness Art CIC which holds free art classes on the last Thursday of the month.
Khushood Ahmed, the company’s director, said: “The main idea is to engage more adults in different forms of creative art.
“It’s a way of exploring talents that they didn’t know that they already have.
“In this area especially, it is nice to encourage cohesion and we are a very friendly group.”
