Fab idea! And a cause that is worthy of support too. I’m a qualified Life Coach looking to help the same kind of people and would love to collaborate when you do get set up. Good luck with your Crowdfunding! X

I know the joy Michaela's pottery cafe brought to St Ives, and to myself. It is a truly wonderful, calm and creative space and I hope it becomes a reality once more. I will not be able to enjoy this 'perk' in person, so it is my wish that Michaela will pass it on to someone who will benefit, on my behalf. Best luck for the future, and all the lemons it has in store.

Looking forward to coming and drinking some coffee and checking out your artsy stuff. This sounds like a great venture and I hope it is a great restart for you.

Great idea and use of space in one of Ripley's most historically and culturally important buildings. Amber Valley Council should should get involved.
