Westmoore Pottery will host historical cook Karen Becker, recently retired from Frontier Culture Museum of Virginia, as she prepares historical dishes in the large fireplace at Westmoore Pottery from 10 am to 4 pm. Karen will cook at the large fireplace at Westmoore Pottery.  Learn how some of the old pottery shapes were used in hearthside cooking and how food was prepared in previous centuries.   Sampling will be allowed!

In addition, our next-door-neighbor blacksmith shop Mill Creek Forge will be joining in the fun of "Stepping Back in Time" by hosting blacksmithing, weaving, spinning, woodworking, candle making/rush lights, and cooking on a fire pit.  (Some of his activities will only be weather-permitting.)

Join us to celebrate the holiday season. The shop will be decorated for the holidays, with new and different Westmoore Pottery ornaments on the Christmas tree.  We will unload a kiln load of pottery for this day, including special pieces made just for this holiday season. Refreshments will be served.
