A Suffolk potter who appeared on a hit TV show returned to his former college to host a masterclass.

Henry Moore from Bury St Edmunds appeared on Channel 4's hit show 'The Great Pottery Throwdown' in 2021.

The 26-year-old studied a level four art foundation programme at One Sixth Form College in 2014.

After making a name for himself on the Channel 4 show, he spent a day at his former college, teaching current students, and offering them advice.

"The fact I used to study here made the experience more real for them."
