You may have heard the sad news of the devastating fire at Carla Pownall’s studio last week; her studio and all her equipment were destroyed in a matter of minutes. Unfortunately her insurance will not pay out so we are raising money to get her up and running again – hopefully well before our open studios weekend next June! If you would like to help with a donation – however small, every little helps – there is a Just Giving page here.
If you have not had the chance to visit Carla’s studio then you can find out a bit more about it in this lovely video.
I left school at 16 and found my dream job … a potters apprentice – which I did for 7 years while getting married and having the children.
I always had a kiln and potter’s wheel and on our youngest son leaving school we decided to expand the workshop to let others enjoy the feeling of clay.
