Great to be able to open again and welcome back all our lovely students for our first class of the year.
Lovely day for a Raku day, bit chilly though! Great company and first time to try out some horsehair and feather naked Raku.
Thanks again for an enjoyable return and hope to see you all soon.

As we didnโ€™t manage to hold our annual Christmas exhibition and get together this year. Here is a small selection of work that I managed to take photos of before it was whisked away, by all you lovely talented potters.
We would like to thank you all for all your help and support over this year. We are so grateful to everyone that gave their time so we could open again in a safe way.
Happy Christmas to you and your families and letโ€™s hope 2021 is a good one!!!
