July Meeting

Our July meeting will be hosted by our Vice President, Jamie.  We hope to have a demonstrator, a wheel throwing demonstration by one of our members.  If that doesn't happen then we will be showing a DVD of the work of Peter Rushforth.
There is always time at supper to speak with other members and ask your pottery questions. Bring a plate of food to share and enjoy some company of other potters.
See you there at 7.30pm Wednesday 6th July 2011.

2012 Is Our Golden Anniversary - How will we celebrate?

All members, past and present are asked to help us plan our celebrations of 50 years of potting.
A committee will be formed and we are asking for ideas on how our celebration should be held.  We could have a reunion, a dinner, a special workshop, a charity fundraiser event?  Please get in touch and let us know what you would like to see happen to celebrate 50 years of friendship amongst those who love to make with clay.

Please email us with your response -
