A potential souvenir that can be produced on site could be plant pots/vases. Created with ceramic and painted or printed on in the workshop, these could be produced and sold with plants grown in the community garden. Figure D is a painted pot with a typical Blackpool theme, depicting the tower. This sort of design could be sold in a gift shop, but visitors to the workshop should paint whatever they want, with some being presented in the gallery.
