Shutford Summer Festival 2018

Wow, what a great little festival! Small but perfectly formed, with loads of interesting stalls & demonstrations – including Fired Up Studios, lovely people, fab weather, great bar & Bands!

Lovely to meet so many first time throwers – only just managed to fit all the pots in the car for the journey back to the studio, keep your eyes peeled for pot firing updates, they should be due for collection from Shutford Village Hall shortly…

Another great part of the Shutford experience was making this platter to mark the occasion…

Banbury ArtsFest – 10th June 2018

Had a great day taking our portable wheel on its first road trip offsite to the 2nd Annual Banbury ArtsFest, part of the Banbury District Show…

Our next road trip will be to Shutford Summer Festival on 23rd June, so if you missed us in Banbury head over to Shutford – we’ll have both wheels there for a proper Throwdown!
