Carly's March Blogness!
Hello everyone! We move on to another month of 2022, and find ourselves in Spring. I love this time of year - when all the beautiful flowers peep their heads out from under the soil after a cold Winter. All the lovely colours of yellows, purples, whites and blues of the daffodils, crocus, snowdrops and hyacinths - it's such a lovely sight.....and something we need to focus on at this difficult time for the World - the beauty within it.
We have decided that we really need to do our bit and show support for Ukraine - as well as our chosen charity of Black Country Mental Health. We have a selection of pottery which can be painted up which features sunflowers - the national flower of Ukraine. If you would like to come into the studio and paint something from the collection, 50% of the proceeds will be sent to the Red Cross Ukraine fund. Also, if any of you are finding the current situation is affecting your mental health, and you would like someone to talk to, give the Support Line at Black Country Mental Health a call on 01384 442938.
March is also the month of celebrating the Mothers in our lives - we have lots of finished-ware which would make a perfect gift, or maybe you would like to treat your Mom to a pottery experience? We have takeaway craft kits and also gift vouchers available. We also need to look forward to Easter next month - we literally have hundreds of eggs and eggcups ready for painting, or maybe you fancy making a pinch pot Easter Bunny? Book the kids in now ready for the Easter holidays - we're going to be busy!
Right - that's me for another month. I'm off to paint something uplifting and beautifully bright!
