I can’t believe where the time goes! It’s nearly December and into Christmas silliness again! I decided to only participate in one show this season (Make It Indie) and as of tomorrow I’ll be back in the empty unit 41 King St West, Cobourg as pop up shop again. All the pieces in there are for sale so make contact with me if you want to make a purchase. Gift certificates are available for that ‘hard to buy for person’ which could be a pottery course, clock, bowl or anything in between!
Looking forward to the New Year and teaching some more at Trinity College School and other local schools.
