a good day had by all - Workshop Taster Day



So last Saturday we had a Workshop Taster Day at the mill. We all came together to help promote those who were interested in running workshops here at Higherford Mill. We set up little workstations and had small projects to play with. I set up a tile making one with the more adventurous making a tea light holder. I must admit it was good fun and lots of lovely people came to say hello and explored their creative side.


They are now in the kiln ready for collection this Saturday I will post the pics of them as well.
