This past weekend Beloved, Little One and I took a break from the Big Smoke and headed to the New Forest for the weekend. It was great to get out of the city, spend some time together and some time in the great outdoors! We stayed in a little lodge in between Fordingbridge and Godshill. On Sunday afternoon we were out walking and came across Godshill Pottery – a pottery!! What luck! (Cue rolled eyes from beloved).
Godshill Pottery is home to Chris and Kate Charmin. They open their gallery up Monday to Saturday and have been making pots since the 1960s! We met Kate and chatted about her husbands pots, mostly earthenware these days, and of course The Great Pottery Throw Down! I couldn’t leave without buying a beautiful green and red mug.
It was really great to see a well established pottery and the range of work both Kate and Chris produce. If you find yourselves in the New Forest I’d highly recommend it!
