Today kicked off with a walk along the seafront between the piers. The old fisherman’s workshops in the arches under the road opening onto the beach have been sympathetically restored and colonised by cafés and artists, many open all year round. We visited two neighbouring arches exhibiting in the Christmas AOH; starting with Little Beach Boutique . Featuring handmade glass, I most liked Suzanne O’Leary’s frozen blue slice of wave, complete with bubbles, capturing the spirit of the sea. Some very charming children’s felt character slippers from Charlotte Macey, too.
Then to 229 Ceramics , home to the work of a group of ceramicists. A great selection on offer; the silver birds, miniature egg cups for quails’ eggs and the polka dotted milk carton milk jugs all caught my eye.
