S&C Christmas Fair – Revised Date (now Friday 9th Dec)

The date of Smith & Causey’s Christmas fair has changed to Friday 9th December (6-9.30pm).  The WSP workshop area upstairs will be being set up for the Christmas exhibition on this date, however anyone wishing to sell work at the fair could do so downstairs on the wedging table, or more than welcome to take a stall.

Smith & Causey will be using marquees outside as  done on previous years as well as some space within the former Froyle Tiles units.

If you do have any contacts for people wanting to have a stall, please  let me know I will pass them on. They are obviously wanting to get a good variety of crafts and food suppliers, so any help gratefully received.

Hopefully the fair will encourage people to come to the WSP exhibition the following week.

BBC Four – Ceramics: A Fragile History

Interesting looking program on TV tomorrow evening. BBC Four, Ceramics: A Fragile History, Monday 1oth October at 9pm.

‘Ceramics are where art meets function – one of our oldest and most fundamental art forms, that sits at the centre of our homes. The first film in this three-part series looks at a history of domestic pottery in Britain from Tudor times onwards, tracing the evolution of its different techniques and styles, and examining what our pots can tell us in intimate detail how preceeding generations lived and saw themselves.’
