A star of hit Channel 4 show The Great Pottery Throw Down has taught students the art of ceramics at a Suffolk school.

Bury St Edmunds-based artist Henry Moore, who starred in this year's series, visited Sybil Andrews Academy in the town on Monday to host the special workshop for Year 10 pupils.

Mr Moore said he was "really impressed" by their work.

He said: “I enjoy teaching ceramics in schools and I was delighted to be invited to Sybil Andrews Academy.

“I taught the students how to make a cylinder and dome and then they had the chance to design them individually.
