(Andrew Walford)

Easter is fast approaching and with it comes well-known Zen potter and acclaimed ceramist Andrew Walford’s Easter Hot Pots & Hot Cross Buns which will run from April 2 to 5.

Need a break from the chaos of the world. Come unwind at Walford’s country studio overlooking the Shongweni Dam and Game Reserve. Admire the world-class Zen-Zulu style ceramics in the eclectic studio and take home an individual piece of pottery to adorn your home.

Tea, coffee, homemade lemonade and hot cross buns will be served.

There is ample space for self-distancing; however, masks should still be worn in the main studio.
