I make paper pots by folding in 4 length ways then wrap round a aerosol can then squash the bottom in a tuna can works for me -

with regard to Glastonbury I went to the 2nd one way back in the 70's was stationed in Taunton needed something to do one Saturday - nowadays have a problem driving past the place...

I love paper pots, rubbish recycling, forrageing and the Levellers (best are the Prodigy though)..""""theres only one way of life and that's your own!!"""""""
 missed out on a gig but a friend went and got crushed..she was OK...my husband used to look like he had come from a band, long tatty hair and holy jogging bottoms and converse boots..now he has no hair and I have a lot more tummy and bum and legs and face but we still love each other... A FB friend put a blog of her going on a basket weaving course and the end result she made a tray and filled it with those paper pots, idea for selling at fetes etc!!!!!!!

I made some of these pots using a Harrod Horticultural seed catalogue  ;D ;D

It's quite good because you can overlap the flaps to hold them all together.

Definately, let us know when and there might be an empty rig for a night or 2 if you wanted to stay over and sit by the fire outside drinking cider or tea ;D

Life's too short to waste it folding paper for hundreds of pots. :D

 There is a design  of a pot maker made in turned wood . It has a tube that has a renovable torroidal insert in the bottom and a mating torroid in a plunger that fits the tube with a fair clearance . Youn simply roll the tube as mentioned in the airosol and tuna can approach and push it down hard into the tube with the torroidal plug in the botton  , the paper folds over and locks in tight .
 I think it is with a second slightly smaller rammer once the inital stopped tube is made .
 There might be a youtube clip somewhere if you care to play looking for such things.

 If I remember I'll go to my mates when I go back home at the end of the week and ask if I can take piccies of their tube maker

I did a load whilst watching telly this evening :-)

I do enjoy origami so I guess for me it was no hardship.

I think you are on about the 'paper potter' which is fun and works well, but you have to pay for it and i'm far to tight to do that ;D ;D
I'm like SuzieQ and make em whilst watching TV or summat
