Ceramic Class

Team Garnet reporting – Backs all bent, elbows in, arms straight and head over bowl – lets make cylinders!

I finished my ceramic class at the Fireworks stadium really enjoyed it and good to see the results of things I made with my hands. Would love to focus on the forms more and experiment with trying more grainy earthy clays. I can see how focussing on refining shape can be a lifelong pursuit.

Leo & Ted

A wee return trip to Edinburgh to visit Leo & Ted for some top notch coffee and baking. They use great coffee from roasters such as Coal Town Coffee, Hands on Coffee and the Highlands Glen Lyon Coffee as well as do their own baking which really makes a difference.

Brew Lab West

The new second coffee spot from Brew Lab in the west end of Edinburgh. Loved the confident design with all the strip lights as features, the neon, minimal palette and modern “mecano” furniture. I got slightly caught up with drawing the roof rather than than the customers like I’d normally do,

Fortitude Coffee

Fortitude Coffee

A lovely coffee shop in Edinburgh near the Scottish National Portrait gallery where the kindness and good nature of its owners are as much part of the place as the coffee has a really good atmosphere.

I also picked up some Drop Coffee all the way from Stockholm.
