Tricia Francis has been our resident Potter here at Wroxham Barns since 1989 but has now decided that it’s time for her to explore other creative avenues with clay.
She remembers what a big step it was all those years ago to take on a combined workshop/retail space open 7 days a week to local and holiday visitors. But it paid off, as she doubled her turnover in the first year and tells us she loved this unique space where she could not only create but also meet customers face to face, with customer favourites being her bespoke house name plates and decorated kitchenware. Having trained as a teacher, she also plans to run some small pottery classes, passing on to others what she has learned over the past 37 years of potting.
Tricia asked us to say a huge thank you to all her lovely customers from near and far at Wroxham Barns, many of whom have become friends and she hopes you’ll keep in touch via her website www.triciafrancispottery.co.uk.
All of us here at Wroxham Barns would like to take this opportunity to wish Tricia all the very best with her newest ventures which we’re sure will be a great success.
Tricia’s move to pastures new presents a rare and exciting opportunity to acquire a highly visible retail arts & crafts space and we’re keen to fill the studio with a talented local artisan wanting to take that next step into retail at the heart of our award-winning visitor attraction.
