  • helping us to raise funds
    Each year, the principle source of funding is our attendance at various Ceramic Fairs and Exhibitions, where we hold tombolas and raffles, and sell T-shirts and the mugs made by apprentices. To a large extent, this relies on the generosity of the professional potters attending the exhibitions to donate a piece of their work, and also voluntary help in organising our attendance. The Trust has also been very fortunate to receive a number of very generous private donations and to benefit from the fund raising activities of professional potters on our behalf. If you would like to assist with fund raising, please contact us.
