Autumn is here, the leaves are starting to turn and the evenings are drawing in. I like this time of year as I feel I can hunker down, pull on extra jumpers and fully immerse myself in the studio. It's wonderful to be back in the studio, it has taken a bit of adjustment but I've found my feet and loving making.
I had the news this weekend that the Oxford Ceramics fair has been cancelled, all physical shows this year have suffered due to the current situation, its the first year in many that I've not travelled the country and set up my work. I have missed the interactions with customers and my fellow makers but those interactions have not gone, they have emerged in a different form and are not gone.
Instead of physical shows I am pleased that I will be taking part in Made London online 5th-8th November and The Digital Craft Festival 27th-29th November. I had a lovely chat with Sarah James from Craft Festival/Digital Craft Festival for her podcast The Capital of Craft, hope you enjoy!
