To Teach, To Learn, To Share

Guild Christmas Show a Great Success!

Here are a few images from the show. If you joined us, thank you! If not, we’ll be there again next year!

We were happy to have more potters back this year, a few new ones, and a few that have returned after a hiatus.

We are on CHEX TV!

On November 28th, Michelle Ferrari and Teresa Kashuba visited June Goodwin’s studio to do a segment on Chex TV’s 5 O’clock show. There were at the studio for almost three hours learning to throw. You’ll see by the photos that they had a great time, and had to do the famous potter’s scene from the movie Ghost.

The program aired on November 29th on Chex TV.  Sorry this video is no longer available!
