Middleport pottery....The adventure starts

At my degree show i was picked up by the stoke-on-trent council, who wanted to help young makers set up their businesses in stoke! 
Me and Katy Dutton (a wood and plastic turner) were chosen from staffs university and were joined by two other ceramists.

After attending a craft fair at staffs uni, i was approached by a woman called Emily who put me in contact with the north staffs guild of craftsmen, who were putting on a fair at middleport pottery. 
Kindly they let me join them and i had much success there....little did i know, i was actually going to be moving in to middleport pottery!
As soon as we went into the space, i feel in love! The factory itself has been renovated by the princes trust, to maintain its heritage and help  provide spaces for creative businesses in stoke. 
Im hoping to be in the unit in the next few weeks, so ill keep you updated about events at middleport and also about our launch party!
