Arts in Scotland

(Photograph) - Ceramics tutor Ray Plazalski (above) is running clay construction workshops at Glasgow's Burrell Collection for 600 Primary 5-7 pupils from 30 schools in the central belt. Plazalski is a veteran of Govancroft Pottery, the last of the great Glasgow potteries which finally closed in 1980, and his highly-prized work is held in public and private collections. The children learn various methods of working with clay and use their own designs, inspired by the Burrell's extensive collection of Chinese ceramics. There are four workshops each week until March 24. For details of other workshops at the Burrell, tel: 0141 287 2748
