This years Potfest competition, ‘Time and Reflection’

‘Time and Reflection’ is this years competition title at Potfest in the Pens so I decided to make a series of ‘Letters in Lockdown’ reflecting on the messages sent to loved ones during the time of lockdown, creating ‘happy post’ ✉️ You can find them in situ in the hall alongside other amazing pieces where you are even able to vote for your favourite. Last day tomorrow 10am - 5pm, Skirsgill Auction Mart, Penrith, Cumbria.

Potfest in the Pens 2021

Potfest is back 🌼 With only a couple of weeks to go, I have been busy making for this lovely Summer event. You can find me along with lots of other exhibitors from the 30th & 31st of July & 1st of August at Skirsgill Auction Mart in Penrith, Cumbria. Held undercover so a great place to visit come rain or shine. Potfest is always a good opportunity to meet the artists and purchase direct to pick up those unique handmade pieces.

Visit here for more information and you can book tickets for this year online too.

If you do plan to pop along please do come and say hello - it will be lovely to see you 💛
