What are we up to?
Hello dear ones,
I hope that you have had a fabulous summer through rain and shine!
Ours was intense but definately ended on a high so it feels like the perfect place to begin a new season.
With that in mind we are all full steam ahead in preparation for our events this Season. We are actually leaving the county for the first time in some years which is very exciting (Farnham Maltings here we come!)
We've been making some new things and can't wait to share them with you.
I've put some info and links below, do come and find us if you are in our neck of the woods, we'd love to see you!
Also for all you lovely folks who have been asking about workshops we are delighted to be running our decoration making workshop in Falmouth again with added mobiles.
Come and join us or give as a gift, It'll be fun!
Our next shop update will be Thursday October the 5th but I'll send you a reminder closer to the time.
We'd like to wish you a very gentle Autumn.
We look forward to catching up with you somewhere soon!
We are delighted to be taking part in the Form Art Fair in Falmouth.

It is always a joy to take part in this event and we're even more excited to be back for the first time since 2019.
Art In Clay Farnham is a showcase for some of the finest ceramics currently being made by individual makers in the UK and Europe.
Potters from across the UK and beyond travel to exhibit at this event which includes both emerging and established makers.
From animal sculptures to pots designed for domestic use, with a vast range in between to interest anyone that appreciates ceramics.
Held in the Farnham Maltings, Art in Clay offers a weekend of talks and demonstrations, as well as the opportunity to purchase works directly from the makers. The Maltings is a lovely welcoming, accessible venue, with good transport links nearby, parking and catering onsite. It is an inspiring way to spend a winters day and soak up the talent and warmth of the UK ceramics community.
In this workshop, I will talk you through and demonstrate various techniques to explore the translucent properties of porcelain. Working with thin slabs you will have the opportunity to create a unique set of translucent decorations which can be displayed individually in your windows or combined to make a mobile or composite piece. The decorations will be fired and available for collection from Inspire Makers two weeks after the workshop or can posted for a small charge.
