Olde English Pottery Eye Candy

Recommended Posts

There are some excellent BBC series on Youtube -free to watch- that include, here and there, some interesting recreations of old English and a little French in the Castle series, pottery. Unfortunately the pottery is mainly sitting around but I believe it's pretty authentic, plus there is a segment on actual throwing in the castle series somewhere, it was pretty short. Lots of other interesting old crafts covered in a fun way, from  taming moor ponies to weaving wool, I'm currently making my first wattle thanks to the Tudor series. Some of the episodes are not great video quality, most are excellent.

I've included links to the first episodes of each of the series I know about and more seem to be included as time goes by:

Learned how to make a fine brush from a feather! In the second Tudor one, I think. (Also fell into a Clarissa rabbit hole- saw her cook from the first English cookbook, commissioned by Richard II. Showed ceramic drinking cups, but wooden plates, mostly, in the recreation.)

Thanks, @yappystudent.
