OPen Studio

Well I spent most of yesterday morning glued to the TV, even the rabbits had a long wait for their breakfast ! We had our own little celebration and the girls baked a brilliant red,white and blue cake.

Royal wedding aside we've been preparing for the next open studio event, this year we're hoping to get lots of lovely people through the door. I've been madly making pots for my other little pottery which is quite exciting and a very different challenge to Little Walton Bank. So if you fancy calling in to see us come along on the 14th of May.......we are aware of a very important football match on this day so a screen will be set up for all you stoke fans. There will be lots of lovely things to see and buy from our maker friends, Graeme will be showing his latest work and our children have a great idea to keep your children busy. Come along we'd love to see you.

Press and Spring

Spring is here at Little Walton Bank, actually the house is still very cold so fires continue to be  part of our daily ritual, there's nothing like putting on extra jumpers and hand knitted socks ( my sister is a demon sock knitter ) and then when you leave the house taking it all off as it's warmer outside . The joys of living in a old jail !

This month we've had a bit of local press interest, mainly from the derbyshire magazine, it's a great article

 If you look closely you can see me throwing a pot. We've also had some really nice blog interest, one of my favourites was from the fab blog -

We've updated the stockist list so if anyone out there wants to see us in some great shops and on some lovely internet sites check out the website for details.

As for the rest of this month we'll be getting the pottery fully up and running, so I'll be rolling up my sleeves and getting dirty, once we are fully working I  plan to start working on our next collection.

Oh and our next open studio event will be on May14th ....more to follow later but if you fancy having a go at throwing your own pot Little Walton Bank will be the place to be !
