Watch this Space
What a Space
Those of you that have visited the pottery workshop
will recognise this as the barn at the end
of our current workshop.
The National Trust have secured some funding to turn it into
another craft workshop.
and following a meeting with the Trust
we have decided to move our workshop into this space.
we are not giving up all of our current workshop
we are going to keep two sections of the workshop
that will become our new showroom.
I think I've said this before on the Blog
"Sometimes you just have to grab the chance while it's there"
We have the opportunity to move the workshop yet again
that will be 4 moves in four years.
Not something we would have done by choice, but
this is such a great space.
So why do it? I hear you ask
It will allow us to get a bigger kiln
and set up better for some production throwing.
This picture shows the barn on the right hand side
and if you look at the roof tiles you can see
the darker bit on the right would also be our showroom.
We have done it all before this was our last workshop
and this is the bit we will be giving up.
The move will not happen until sometime next year
but we will keep you posted.
It's all very exciting again here.
I'm back on the Blog again and Why? Because The Chinese have landed on the dark side of the moon? No, because I have time, time ...
OK here are all the elements needed to build the kiln. I had some 3mm ceramic paper left over from building my large gas kiln 2 years ago. ...
Earlier in the year one of my daughters sent me a link to an article in Vogue magazine which stated "Pottery is the New Yoga"...
