As some of you may know, the Artisans’ Centre, of whom the KPG is a founding member, is moving to Peterborough Square as of March 1st.  All classes for the Woodturners, Spinners & Weavers and Gourders will now be taking place in Unit # 3, downstairs.  They will be having a Grand Opening on Saturday, March 23, from 11:00 a.m. to 3 p.m and everyone is cordially invited!  We would like to extend our best wishes for their continued growth and success!

Grand Opening still on!

We had a great day yesterday with lots of really good sports.

Mayor Bennett of Peterborough came and cut the ribbon of our new premises and then hand made a bowl that we will be selling at the YWCA’s Empty bowl event taking place on June 21st.  He has spent time making pies, we suspect!  Then we had MP Dean Del Mastro on hand in the afternoon and he threw a bowl as well!  He learned the the placement of the tongue is very important when making pottery.  We were impressed that he was able to throw a pot and keep his black suit clean!

The boys from CHEX, Tyler Calver and Mike Judson also made bowls on the wheel and had a great time. Mike Judson had such a good time he stayed longer and made a news desk! (Tyler wanted to stay but had a prior engagement)  It’s such a fun place here that people love to stay!

We were impressed with all of guests that came out yesterday.  What good sports.  Mike and Tyler even did a re-enactment scene from the movie Ghost. Very funny.

We are still open today from noon – 4 and we welcome all to come down and view our facilities.  You can have a go trying out building things with clay at our working area and be inspired to take a class!  We know we will see the fellows that were here yesterday again! 🙂

 

Here are some photos from the day.  The Spinners and Weavers as well as the Woodturners were also on hand demonstrating their art in our lovely courtyard.  There is plenty of parking, so please feel free to visit.
