Exciting Workshop News !!!!!

Over the past two months I have been involved in discussions
with the property Manager for this area of the National Trust.
They have ambitious long term plans for the development of the
Barrington Court Farm Buildings.
I had been putting my case forward to be a part of these plans.
I am asked on a weekly basis if I do lessons,
but I just don't have the space in my current workshop.

I currently occupy two bays at the book sales end of the building
But we have just agreed that I will move into the other end of the building
occupying an area of five bays.
Thus giving me the room to offer a range of Lessons and Taster sessions.
some of which will be held in conjunction with the National Trust.
This is what the building looks like inside at the moment.
It's so light and has a great feel about it.
Perfect for a pottery workshop and showroom.
See even the local birds think it's homely.
This is a very exciting development for us and we are really looking forward to the challenge.
There is a lot to do yet to finalise it all, but Our friends in the Village have been
great even offering to come and help us turn it into workable space.
You may have all been in a alcoholic haze at the time at David's Excellent 70th
Birthday Party on Saturday Night. But I've remembered every
one of you that offered to paint, sand, sweep and clean.
