(Andrew Walford)

Head for Shongweni tomorrow for a country Zulu Zen experience at the Andrew Walford Pottery Open Day. On offer will be hundreds of flame-fired pots; Ikebana and the usual popular Bargain Basement.

Walford has recently returned from Korea where he has been awarded prizes for his tea bowls for two years running. His entry to the Singapore Chawan Exhibition was also a sell-out. There will be a section where visitors can taste various teas including the fabled Korean green tea out of Andrew’s bowls.

Walford’s studio is a special place overlooking Shongweni dam and game reserve where you can meet friends over refreshments which include Joy’s homemade cakes and Neetha’s legendary breyani.

Andrew Walford Pottery Open Day takes place tomorrow (Sunday, December 7) from 10h00 to 18h00. For more information, call 031 769 1363 or 082 794 7796 or visit
