Welcome to our new look, mobile-ready website.

This month’s presentation - ‘Cumnock to Compton - a story of two potteries’ by Louise Boreham.
Thursday 21st May

Ceremony Suite, Rothesay House, Local Council Offices, 1 Greenholm Road, Cumnock, KA18 1LH

Louise is originally from Edinburgh and was a college lecturer in Kirkcaldy, now retired and living in Fife, she has an interest in art history of the Victorian/Edwardian period. She is also a member of the Scottish Pottery Society and has uncovered the story of how James Nicol from the Cumnock Pottery ended up managing the Compton Arts & Crafts Pottery, Surrey, in the 1900s. We have been helping Louis in her research and it promises to be a very interesting presentation. If you have any pieces of Cumnock pottery we would love to see it.
