Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, Leftwich Pottery does not currently have any planned upcoming events. However, the shop is still open by appointment only. Masks are required for everybody's safety. In the meantime, we are still producing pieces, and once it is safe to do so, we will announce new sales events. From the Leftwich Family, we wish everyone the best of health during these unusual, difficult times. Please stay safe!
