Over the past six months we’ve been running an occasional ‘Makersprofile’ series of Instagram posts featuring selected customers. If they are agreeable, we ask them three simple questions to accompany their photo:

  • What made you visit us today?
  • What was your favourite part of the session?
  • What do you do when you are not making pottery?
