Mt Pleasant Pottery Group - Christchurch
The Mt Pleasant Pottery Group was established in 1960 and prior to the 2011 earthquakes had over 100 members. Our members came mainly from the eastern suburbs, but also from across Christchurch and surrounding towns. We lost our studio, that was attached to the Mt Pleasant Community Centre, in the 2011 earthquake and since then our club has been kept alive by stalwart members finding facilities at other clubs and even a home studio. This enabled many new students and members to take part in the club's activities, including adult classes, demonstrations, workshops, sales days and the annual exhibition. We also run School Holiday classes for children in Phillipstown Hub area.
We have potters whose skills range from those who are experienced and nationally recognised through to those just discovering the joys of playing with clay. New members are always welcome to come and play.
