River Cottage Spring Fair 2013
We are busy making stock for the River Cottage
Spring Fair 2013.
The Axminster canteen has just had a face lift
and we popped in on Wednesday morning for Breakfast
which we would highly reccomend.
We also picked up some posters and leaflets for the showroom.

Because they are slipped on the inside I try and dry them out
on the kiln as it's cooling down.
I find it helps to stop them from collapsing.
at the last River cottage event we almost sold out of ramekins
in the first hour.
So this year We are taking no chances and making sure we have plenty of stock.
I made 60 yesterday, but we need another 140.
As you can see it's all just a bit too much for Cadbury.
This morning we opened the first Glaze firing of the year.
These are New for 2013.
Garlic pots are now back in stock.
and these jugs are going to be available in four sizes.
So plenty to go at this year,

the building changes, there is a real buzz around the
workshop at the moment.
