Way before Christmas I saw an advert for a Celebrating salt and soda glaze weekend at Whichford Pottery near Shipston-on-Stour in Warwickshire. Years ago I had an interview, in fact two interviews there for their apprenticeship scheme sadly it was the Foot and Mouth year and so they ended up not being able to take me on after all. Anyway I have always had a secret second love for salt and soda glaze work so I thought it would be really interesting. I completely forgot what with everything else going on that it is this weekend and I am off on a big train journey tomorrow. I’ve only just gotten home as well, poor Paul, he’ll forget what I look like.
Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th April
A two-day extravaganza of practical demonstrations, kiln firings/openings, seminars and informal discussions featuring many of Britain’s best Salt & Soda practitioners
The weekend will be fun and informative for professionals, amateurs, collectors, teachers, and anyone interested in the exciting world of studio ceramics.”
