Happy New Year!
There’s lots to look forward to this year and I’m starting the year with a trade fair. From 11-13th January 2015 I will be presenting my new collection at Craft which is part of Top Drawer at Olympia. Come along and say hello if you are visiting and if you can’t make the show but are interested in becoming a stockist, please contact me for a link to the photos of the new work. Glazuur Aardewerk will be presenting my new work at a trade fair in Holland at the beginning of February so please contact me for more details.
I will soon be updating my online shops and I have an exhibition of new work planned for February. I’ll also be busy in the studio getting ready for the Country Living Spring Fair, at the Business Design Centre 18-22nd March.
Evening classes fill up pretty quickly but please see below for the list of Spring workshops and get in touch to book. Most courses are for 8-10 people so you get lots of tuition time, throwing classes have a wheel each! Please bring a packed lunch, cotton apron and a notebook.
Here is the programme for Spring classes, please get in touch if you would like more information, I will shortly be trialling an online booking page for the one day workshops but email me if you are interested. You can pay over the phone in person, via paypal and good ol’fashioned cheque in the post.
