Today, a masterclass on spinning – which is metal latheing – we took a metal disc  and pressed it against a wood former that was the right shape for the lid of our pot. It took a few moments to achieve what would take hours to raise. It takes years to be a master spinner, but we got an insight into the process (so I can talk to a commercial spinner and have an idea of what is possible).
