We had a great cleanup day on January 27th, we cleaned the garden outside ready to put down gravel to make it a permanent raku area, and inside all nice and tidy for the year thank you to the 10 who attended we appreciate your cleaning skills.
Web site will be up and running very soon, we would like our members to bring along one or two pieces of their work on Tuesday 13 club day for photographing; this will be on our website gallery showing our work to the public. Size of the work.name and any other information would be helpful. It doesn’t have to be an exhibition piece, one that you like and are proud of. If Tuesday is not suitable we will make a Saturday available. This will be on going for a month or two until we have a picture gallery on show.
Club night’s demonstrations for this term starting with Andrew Carron on Tuesday 13 at 7pm
"Everything melts-- glaze materials in your own back yard"
First get together of the year with Question time on glaze materials, chemicals, glaze ingredients, etc with keen potter and retired soil scientist Andrew Curran.
I believe Andrew has made glaze with soil from his veggie patch! Andrew will have lots to share and show. With his knowledge and analytical mind every glaze problem can be solved. This is a great opportunity for newbie’s and old hands alike. Bring your questions, samples, pen and paper.
$5 for club members and $10 for non members all welcome.
