Over the last couple of days I have begun the process of settling into the new workshop. I didn’t manage to get in over the festive break but have now managed make good headway.

Freshly thrown pots will go on the ware shelves on the back wall; biscuit-fired ware will go on the shelves on the wall to the left of the wheel; and glazed ware will go in the alcove. It feels unbelievably good to have a workshop again. I made some glaze test tiles today and will start throwing again tomorrow. Time is of the essence – there is much to do.

Also in the workshop complex is a furniture restorer (I think) and two weavers. There is a plan to have an opening of the workshops to which anyone who would like to come can come. You would be more than welcome, it would be lovely to see you. When the plan is a little bit more concrete, I will let you know.

    Excellent! Let the clay start to fly.

    • Indeed, Pete. I can’t wait to start filling those shelves. Happy New Year…

        Re. your post : may well call by some time – we go to Durham a few times a year to visit elderly relatives, & pass through Leeds on the way up from the south coast. Would contact first, of course, in case it’s not convenient for the particular day. We visit other potters wherever possible on our travels about the country. Used to live in Sheffield, also near Falmouth.

      • Whenever you are coming up just get in touch, Pete, and we’ll see what we can do. It would be good to see you. I spent three very enjoyable years in Falmouth doing my B.A. (in sculpture).
