My impressionist journey

In April 2019, I travelled to the USA, and visited quite a few galleries in the D.C. area. I have always loved impressionism, but had never thought I could do create this wonderfully soft painterly effect with ceramics before now. I realised that my latest experiments with layering glazes could be incorporated on some pieces Id thrown back in the UK. Eager to get back to home after my trip, I started straight away to test and work on my idea. Its still ongoing, but Im fairly plaesed with the results so far.

Handmade Christmas @ Bolton Albert Halls

I am pleased to announce that I will be at Handmade Christmas event @ Bolton Albert Halls on 23rd November. Its a one day only event, free to enter. Lots of different handmade goodies on offer and a refreshments area.

Located within the town Hall, The Albert Halls in Bolton is a stunning venue which has recently been renovated by Bolton Council back to its former glory. The Christmas fair is organised by MWL events who have hosted this event for several years. Last years fair was hugely popular, with musicians on all day, it was a really lovely place to shop for unique special gifts, and stay warm and dry. Suitable for all the family, young or old.

Where is it? Right in the centre of Bolton, there is plenty of afforadble parking nearby and disabled spaces right at the door if required. Entrance on Le Mans Crescent.

So what should I make for the Christmas market this year? Just email me ruth@bluefoxceramics.co.uk and let me have your suggestions.
