My take on a traditional British classic!
I had a great break in London the other week. I have always wanted to go to Portobello Road on a Saturday and Columbia Road Flower Market on a Sunday. Both of which I managed to do as well as Camden, The Georgia O'Keefe Exhibition at the Tate Modern, Houses of Parliament, Covent Garden, Carnaby Street, Liberty, Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Motown the musical and squeezing in a bit of sightseeing!

Once again I will be at Potfest in the Pens next month. I look forward to this local event every year! With over 100 potters exhibiting it is a great opportunity to pick up something handcrafted directly from the maker. There is a great mix of styles and pieces all made from the same material... Clay! You can even have a go at throwing a pot yourself! It takes place Friday 5th, Saturday 6th and Sunday 7th August 2016 at Skirsgill Auction Mart, Penrith, Cumbria, 10am-5pm. Look forward to seeing you there if you can make it!
