    Does Lorna at any point explain the pros and cons of her teapot strainer? I wonder why she doesn’t just make holes in the wall of the pot…

    good video and technique using Latex instead of wax resist, found it hard at times to understand her wording, especially when talking about the something ???? slip. Would be great to have a text option below for the hard of hearing, I believe that’s on its way to the videos.
