Mill Farm is the purpose built, tranquil home of Painter, Susie Hunt who has generously let us show with her this year.
In exchange for the space we have cleaned, sorted, repainted and arranged to transform the space into a little Affa Fine paradise where we have a mixture of our own work spaces couples with mixed parts. We have set up a lovely lifestyle wall mixing our products with furnishings.
Throughout the week we will be demonstrating and raku firing.... there will be more to come on that in the coming days!
Here is a rather shoddy set of pictures of the transformations....
