GLAZING & FIRING UPDATE 

If you have any questions please email hello@makenorth.org

 

Firstly thank you for your support in packing up the studio and your patience while we are in the process of finding new premises.

We have been able to arrange firings with the wonderful Cath Crisenti and can confirm the dates below.

Extra Firing

If you would like any additional pots firing before Christmas please drop them off on Sunday 7th November from 9:30am - 1:30pm at Emma’s house:

352 Chapel Lane, New Longton, Preston, PR4 4AA

Directions and additional information: 

Emma can be contacted on 07867337518 on the day for directions, there is parking on the road, or in the cricket club car park across the road​. Your pots must be dry or very nearly dry!

You have already paid for firing and glazing for the pots we have in storage, but as membership payments are currently paused, there will be a fee for new pots charged at £1.50/100grams. This includes both firing and glazing. We will weigh your pots and let you know the total cost.

Saturday 20th November

  • 11am-1pm

The glazing sessions will be held at Briony’s studio:
