Look out for Julia’s ‘Bottle Kiln Cake’….brilliantly decorated by all the kids.
Well done to everyone who took part.
Fabulous food, company and turn out for the pottery party today.
Thank you to Guy and Elaine for hosting a wonderful event. A celebration of retaining the pottery for potters!
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.

‘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.’
