I can't believe where the time goes! It's nearly December and into Christmas silliness again! I decided to only participate in one show this season (Make It Indie) and as of tomorrow I'll be back in the empty unit 41 King St West, Cobourg as pop up shop again. All the pieces in there are for sale so make contact with me if you want to make a purchase. Gift certificates are available for that 'hard to buy for person' which could be a pottery course, clock, bowl or anything in between!
Looking forward to the New Year and teaching some more at Trinity College School and other local schools.
Wow, that was a quick three months! There's been lots of activity here in my Cobourg studio over the winter which has helped pass the time quicker.
My courses have been full, I'm pleased to report and the throwing classes seem to be taking precedent over the hand building at the moment. That's no bad thing as I love throwing!
Exciting news - I finally opened an Etsy store after much procrastination! I have only 7 items on there at present so we'll see how that goes. You can find it as FiringTime.
I had an order for a baby plate (and he just happened to have been born on my birthday, karma I say!) and this has lead me to add a new product line to my repertoire. I had all on not to put a hole through the middle for a clock! Had to hide my hole cutters!
It also prompted me to realise that I no longer wanted to make the hand and feet impressions so after 16 years I have stopped. The time just felt right. That's all for now.
It's hard to believe Christmas is only 5 weeks away! Where did the year go?
It's silly season for me now - I'm in 5 shows between now and Christmas (Upcoming shows all listed under upcoming shows, obviously!) plus Christmas decoration workshops! If you are looking for that elusive Christmas gift, check out the gallery page for clocks, yarn bowls and more. And if they are proving REALLY hard to buy for, gift certificates for lessons are available too!
So have great holiday season and see you in 2017!
Well I'm back from holiday, feeling refreshed and raring to get my hands in the mud again at the next kids workshop this Thursday (Aug 18th) There are still a couple of places if your looking for something creative to do with the kids.
Also, exciting news.....my studio is in the process of being renovated (running slightly behind schedule as it was supposed to be finished now!) Can't wait to start painting my new bright space!
Looking forward to having some summer fun with kids classes this summer! The dates are all posted under 'upcoming workshops'. Now back to making those samples.......
3 days to go!
I've still a few places left for the 6pm and 8pm session this Friday night. Don't forget to call in and say Hello!
I'm really excited to be involved with the Girl's night out in downtown Cobourg this year! It's going to be a fun evening and I'll be giving FREE taster sessions on making a pinch pot. Sessions times are 6pm, 7pm and 8pm so book a spot to guarantee your place! See events/news page for more details.
Also, the Mothers day workshop was a big success! I had 6 children and 1 adult sign up and they made some beautiful plaques and glazed them 2 weeks later. There's going to be some very happy Mom's out there on May 8th!
I've just posted a new clock making workshop - a first at Firing Time studio! Also, I've added two more dates for both throwing and handbuilding courses. These are proving to be great fun, I get to meet some great new people and I love teaching them!
See link below for more details on classes
Happy new year everyone!
Hope you had a great festive season and are back at it, whatever 'it' may be! I'm really excited about starting my new classes on January 25th and just have one more place on the throwing course to fill. If your resolution was to try something new this year, why not give pottery a try? I can guarantee you'll have fun!
