This past weekend I was in KZN as a guest of Andrew and Leanda Walford. I was there to present a workshop to the local branch of Ceramics S A and was fortunate enough to spend the weekend in the Walford's home. What a luscious part of our country this is! It was a privilege to spend hours talking about ceramics in those beautiful surroundings, enjoying food out of his magnificent work and just generally throwing ideas around. Andrew will be running a workshop at his studio in a few months time and I cannot urge you strongly enough to be there. He is, in my opinion, a national treasure and I felt honoured to spend time in his company, as I am sure you will.

Also this past Sunday was the opening of Market on Main. What an incredible turn-out there was to the first day and I am sure this is going to be a truly worthwhile venture. A group of us have got together to form 'Ceramics Collective' an mix of local ceramists currently comprising Colleen Lehmkuhl, Dale Lambert, Elsbeth Burkhalter, Hazel Sherman, Julie Lovelace, Karen van der Riet, Michelle Legg, Sandy Godwin and myself, with a shared vision "to create a destination for those interested in fine ceramics made by hand for the discerning eye." 'Ceramics Collective' will be at Market on Main every Sunday so make sure to get there soon!
