In this week's show we answer three questions from Evangeline, Roman and Clara with help from special guest expert the artist Grayson Perry. Grayson is a world-renowned artist, writer and TV presenter and works a lot with clay to make incredible pots so he is the perfect person to answer Clara’s question. We discover how to make clay last forever and what temperature it needs to go in the oven at in a great answer recorded in Grayson’s art studio. We also find out ways to make fire and how humans discovered it and how to create it. Plus what things can burst into flame by themselves, from nuts to computers! In the third question we talk about the invention of chimney sweeps, the rules they lived by and why it was usually boys who did the job. But girls did it too! Plus how we clean chimneys now.
