West Street Potters Award

The West Street Potters’ Award 2015 has been awarded to Rachel Whitehead to further her understanding and studies of Raku, by attending a 4-day course run by John Evans in Sussex.

We are delighted that Rachel is the first recipient of our annual award and we look forward to hearing about and benefiting from Rachel’s Raku experience.

The closing date for applications for The West Street Potters’ Award 2016 is the last day of February 2016.  Application Forms will be available to download from the website and will also be emailed to Members in early January 2016.


A gentleman has been in touch.  He has a single remaining brown ceramic mug from a set bought around 40 years ago and stamped Cumbria Pottery.

He is looking for someone who could replicate the style and produce some replacements.
