Daunt Books Festival 2024

Florian Gadsby in conversation with Patricia Michelson

By My Hands

Thursday 14th March 2024
4:00pm – 5:00pm

Daunt Books Marylebone

Tickets £8.00


Florian Gadsby has devoted his life to pottery, refining his technique towards the point of perfection. In By My Hands, Florian tells the story of his artistic awakening, his education in England, Ireland and Japan, and of the sheer discipline which has led him to become the cultural sensation he is today.

By My Hands is a moving ode to the beauty of small things, such as a simple hand-thrown mug, which can brighten life’s daily rituals and make them more meaningful – as well as an inspiring testament to the power of perseverance.

We are delighted that Florian will be talking with Patricia Michelson, founder of award winning Marylebone favourite La Fromagerie. Patricia is an entrepreneur, writer and events manager. Her books The Cheese Room and Cheese display her incredible knowledge and enthusiasm.

Patricia has very kindly donated some delicious cheese and other tasty snacks to serve alongside this talk, presented on Florian’s beautiful pottery. Come and dig in!
