I’m a potter making both thrown and hand built work. My pots have quite a graphic quality and drawing directly onto them means each one is completely unique. I have two quite different ranges inspired by both native wild plants and geometric, mid century pattern.
What to expect: I decorate using the technique of sgraffito; each piece is coated in a contrasting coloured clay and the design is scratched through to reveal the white clay body. I intend to demonstrate this technique throughout the weekend so visitors can see work in progress.
Directions: From A7 heading north, go first left after the 30mph sign welcoming you to Langholm (Glenesk Road). Buccleuch Mills is on the left after the former Edinburgh Woollen Mill buildings.
Accessibility: Easy parking. A kerbside to negotiate and and a doorstep – both of which can/will have ramp available as required. No steps inside.
Recommendation: There’s a great walk along the river from Skippers Bridge down to the park by the Parish Church.
