Today I did something very indulgent – I took the day off work to spend it with a friend and we did lots of lovely things. We went to the gym – and sat drinking coffee followed by the jacuzzi and the sauna (so we didn’t actually step foot in the gym bit). Then we went for a lovely lunch (carrot and coriander soup with cornbread for me) followed by a very restful afternoon of ceramic painting in a ceramics cafe. (I just need to apologise at this point for the photo quality – I forgot my camera!)
The beauty of a ceramics cafe is that you can choose anything from a eggcup to a huge vase to decorate – and you don’t need any experience. The simplest designs are usually the most effective – polka dots for example.
I picked a pretty little plate – and my friend a spoon rest – and got painting. I drew a simple flower design on the plain plate and chose pretty pink, lilac and grey to paint it.
When I pick up the finished piece – they have to fire it – I promise to come back and update this post with a decent photo!
