Took a trip to Potclays in Stoke on Trent yesterday with my man to take a look after seeing their website.
Planned to see potters wheels and an electric kiln. They have a nice shop, very friendly, well informed staff and lots to see. Not sure that for me a wheel is essential as I love hand building most of the time so didn't buy, but I did get a small kiln so am a happy bunny although a bit apprehensive as I've never used one myself before.
Can now make/fire more porcelain tea lights and lamp ladies!
Note to self.... stop being 'over cautious' and hesitating over stuff. Really should have bought this years ago.
