Some Raku firings at last

 Our President, Ray and our Vice President Jean generously allowed members to use their kilns for a couple of firings recently.

All Covid restrictions in place still allowed 6 members, each day, to fire some lovely pots...

Members continue to get together during lockdown

 Our October Meeting was again conducted via Zoom.

Members brought their clay and some simple tools and followed our Newsletter Editor, Janet, to make rolling texture stamps.

In September we made lidded pinch pots.

Cancellation of National Pottery Competition 2021


It is with great regret that the Port Hacking Potters Group announces the cancellation of the proposed 2021 National Pottery Competition which was to have been held at the Hazelhurst Arts Centre, Broadhurst Gallery in Gymea in August.

This decision has been made due to the continuing uncertainty as to when the gallery might re-open from the current Covid restrictions in Sydney.

We would like to thank our sponsors for their willingness to support us in these uncertain times and apologize to them for needing to take this decision. We thank the Hazelhurst Arts Centre for their support in working through this decision.

Those who have already sent their entries to us will be contacted shortly.
