I have a wonderfully spacious table, made by Chris. He used the framework from a friend’s greenhouse, when they moved away and attached a piece of marine ply to it, knowing it would last well with the clay and water. He even attached castors to the legs, so that it could be positioned in the room according to the activity being undertaken and how many of us are gathered to make!

So, how is it that I end up, working on my own, but still squashed into a small space at the end of the table for making? Gradually, tools, machinery, drying clay, works in progress, notes… all spread out and take up the space..

Are you the same..?

Chris participated in a zoom reading with a couple of friends the other night to mark National Poetry day. It was a lovely evening, full of those tender moments that only poetry can bring. It was recorded, so if you fancy dipping in to some poetry, I’ve posted them here.

Chris was reading poems (mostly) from hie new book, which can now be ordered directly from here (as well as the usual Amazon behemoth and the like).

Those who kindly pre-ordered their copies will be getting them soon too – we are waiting for a batch to arrive here.

Here are the two recordings.

We are planning an evening of poetry on Thursday evening (6th October 2022)  – we would like to invite you to join us for a (free) evening reading of original poetry to mark National Poetry Day. It would not be the same without you!

Grab yourself a glass of wine or your favourite tea, then settle down for an evening of good chat, lots of laughter and perhaps even a few tears – because after all, poetry is spiritual.

As well as our very own Chris Goan, we will be hearing from two fantastic guest poets, Vicky Allen and Chris Fosten. All three have worked together on previous collaborations as well as developing their own work.

Here is the link.
The event will be on Thursday evening at 8pm.
Hopefully, see you there.

We will be using Zoom.
