A new opportunity for budding artists in the Great Yarmouth area is set to begin at the end of April.

Local artist and teacher, Paul Osborne has started a Pottery workshop which will be taking place on Facebook Live.

Mr Osborne loved pottery, as it "focuses your mind" and gives you "a bit of escapism."

The workshops will be taking place on Facebook Live due to the ongoing restrictions due to the pandemic, however Mr Osborne has plans to hold public events in the near future.

Aware that not everyone will have access to equipment, collections of clay from his house in Gorleston will be available on Monday, April 19, with the workshop taking place on Facebook Live on Friday, April 24.

Attendees will then drop off their work at his house on Saturday, April 25, for him to fire them in his kiln from May 1.
