You may think the holidays are never ending (we wish they were too!) but August is already upon us and September looms.  The shops are selling school uniform and everything is ‘Back to School’.

But there’s still time left to enjoy yourself and indulge in a little ‘me’ time.  Come on down to Sharpes and join one of our summer programmes!  Some are for children exclusively, but Clay Play and Mixed Mosaics could easily be for adults too.  Keep cool in our kiln, visit our Coronation Exhibition before it goes at the end of August, have a drink and a cake at Sweet Caroline’s, take our Mini Beast Family Tour – the options are (almost) endless.

Don’t forget, on Saturday 12 August, in particular, we have a Craft Fair in the courtyard, Kiln and Glaze Room – come along and experience a wide variety of stalls and crafts right here in Swadlincote.  Get all your summer birthday shopping done!

Looking forward to the autumn, we’ll be celebrating 100 Years of Cornishware from T.G. Greens, hosting Raku workshops, offering a short series of lectures as well as all our usual activities for children and families.  And before you know it, it will be Christmas …
