Due to Andrew Pearson from Stone Monkey having to put his feet up while he has his new pottery workshop built, he wasn’t able to produce a Commemorative Pot for Armistice Day, to be raffled during the year, with all monies going to the Royal British Legion.
The challenge was taken up by Simon Haddon of Suteki Accent Pots. He has been working flat out to get it finished and it only came out of the kiln the day before the Swindon show.
Raffle tickets will be available at various venues throughout the year, starting at Swindon, so make sure that you get in early, visit the Suteki sales stand and see Simon for a ticket. The pot will be on display [as long as he doesn’t drop it] It’s £3 a ticket and the raffle will be drawn at the Heathrow show in October.
Andrew will be trading at the show before he then starts planning his new range of ceramics to go with the new workshop.
Today we attended our yearly visit to the Milton Lilbourne Fayre, a lovely event organised by the local community. We used our new marquee which gave us room for a workshop area which the public enjoyed and they asked many questions.
The 21st August 2016 saw the Bristol Bonsai show, a lovely event where we had a chance to chat to many friends. As well as view a large number of lovely trees and accents. Here are some of the displays………
Again the club put on a display at the Wanborough show on Saturday the 20th August 2016, despite the terrible weather warning of very strong winds and heavy rain. But then it wouldn’t be the Wanborough show unless it was that!!!! Luckily, we managed to get the marquee up and the display out while it was dry, although it was blowing a gale and the site is very exposed on the top of a hill.
