This week we welcome the JamFactory to the Guest Blog! No doubt you’ve read all about Lucy’s visit to the JamFactory earlier today and already know that the JamFactory is packed full of outstanding creative artists in the fields of ceramics, glass, metal and furniture. This week we will be getting an fantastic behind the scenes look into each of these departments and see some of the recent projects the crew have been working on. A HUGE thank you to Emma Aiston for curating this exciting week for us! – Jenny x

Welcome to a week with the JamFactory! We hope over the next 5 days we can take the opportunity to introduce you to our unique organisation and some of the folk within it!
