A true do it yourself event, no Craft Council funding, no Lottery money, just forty potters, prepared to roll up their sleeves and get stuck in for the day.

By doing this sort of event, we reach a new audience, many of the visitors would never go to a Ceramics Fair, but judging by the way the various flyers we had were eagerly snapped up, Earth and Fire and Open Studios could experience some new converts this year.
Now it's back to earth and start to get my head around Potfest Scotland, set in the grounds of the Palace of Scone near Perth, the ancient seat of the kings of Scotland. This will be a seven hour journey, instead of just down the road to Loughborough and under canvas, so here's hoping the recent good weather holds and we don't have to wear our down jackets like last weekend.
