Yesterday was quite a day. I went to Cliveden House for the Country Living Magazine and Balvenie whisky “Artisan of the Year” awards and was very pleased and more than a little surprised to be named their “Artisan of the Year”. Cliveden is very grand, I wished I had parked my van in the gap in the middle here.
I don’t know if it will result in a flood of orders. I have very low stocks of bowls at the moment and have just had two orders for building oak bridges which will keep me busy all winter but hopefully it will bring more publicity to the Heritage Crafts Association too.
