Dotty about Emma

I love British Design and I love the fact that you can still find British Design handmade and produced in Britain.
One of my favourite designers is Emma Bridgewater and just recently, as a birthday treat, I Visited her factory in Stoke-on-Trent.

The great thing about this factory visit, is that its a real day out for the whole family.
A factory tour to see how her designs are produced from start to finish ,

followed by 
shopping in the main store...

or the Factory Outlet ...

and a chance for those who feel creative,

 to have a go at painting their own "Emma" inspired design 

 followed by tea and cake..

..baked in a spotty Aga,

all served in signature designs.

A "Truly Great" day out !
