Teignmouth Exhibition

The Opening for The Printemps exhibition went very well, it really did feel like we were celebrating Spring a it was a wonderful day with lots of people out enjoying the sunshine and the beach.
We even managed to get the attention of this dog !

More Bunting

I had Janet to help me with making Bunting as a textile member of Devon Guild of  Craftsmen she was a real asset and the kids loved sewing with her!

Firing Up Tavistock!

I started the Firing Up Project in Tavistock yesterday, on the way there I stopped to get a photo of Drake's statue with Globe on the roundabout near the college- it was a beautiful day for a drive over the moors as you can see by the colour of the sky!
It started well teaching year 8's how to make pinch pots and explaining about Tags, tabs and traces !
