Teapot Designer Rally Saturday June 11th

A very special day planned featuring Paul Cardew, Tony Carter (and Anita), Lionel Bailey (Lorna has just had a baby so cannot join us this time), The Teapottery (Jane and Ian Jeal), Andy Titcomb and Gary Seymour.

Each of these great teapot designers will be showing off their skills, revealing a few special teapot treats and engaging with you about our mutual favourite subject.

Thought you might value a quick reprise of what’s in store on the day.

Doors open at 10.00 a.m. (Saturday June 11th) with the traditional warm welcome at the “signing in” when we will give you a precise program of the day’s events and award you our free and exclusive “pin” to commemorate the occasion.

Each designer will have their own display area, where they will be showing off their very latest designs, special prototypes, and exclusive June 11th 2005 limited editions, plus having a jolly good chat.

there will be at least one “signing” session involving all the designers to get your new acquisitions immortalised and indeed any other pots you want to bring along on the day.

Karen and her restaurant staff are of course going to perform their normal miracles in the kitchen including a delicious lunch, which hopefully can be taken on our sundeck with our traditional musical accompaniment.

Post lunch, there will be an auction, which will exclusively feature very special prototypes from all five designers (three from each).

There will also be a pottery demonstration in ther new ceramic studio with new Studio Potter – Mansour Eskandary. “Mans” will be holding a special “who can throw the tallest pot” competition during the day and also exhibiting some special Cardew / Eskandary joint creations in Raku that might prove irresistible.

- Finally, the day will wind up with a free “draw” (tickets handed to you on arrival) that will have some truly stunning prizes.

No doubt there will be more to add on the day, but hopefully you have found the program irresistible already!

One last important point!

There will be a special “Designers’ Barbecue” on Friday evening (June 10th) starting at 7.00 p.m. Entertaining all the designer teams and hoping that as many as possible of you might join us? The cost will be just £10.00 per head including food and drinks and should be a great way of launching the whole weekend.

If you can make this, please let Sharon know at

Other than that, we very much look forward to seeing you all on this unique occasion!
