We were honoured to have Liz Willoughby presenting on Monday, May 13th at the Kawartha Potters Guild. She was very interesting and showed us how she puts together her Uwers with their spouts. Very good tips from a pro.
We had our first meeting at our first permanent home last night. It was great fun. The place is coming together and the gallery is starting to look pretty good. We only have a small selection of pots from a few potters at the moment, but soon we will have a full complement. Take a look at the space so far!
We had a wonderful talk and slideshow from Yael Novak, and we got to see her collections and “families” of pots and platters. She brought her lovely and helpful husband, who helped us put away the chairs!
We now have our classes all listed and we are offering the option of paying with Paypal now. That should be useful for people who live further out to get signed up. Darlene Malcolm-Moran brought in a sample of the Pumpkin Tea Lights that we will be making for our October 20th Family Clay Time class. It is so cute! You’ll want to make your own in time for Halloween. You can sign up one of the other classes that are being offered as well, also on the classes page.
We were mentioned in the Peterborough Examiner yesterday as well, and we will include a copy of that article when we can get our hands on it. (they were sold out at the local shop last night)
We are looking forward to getting the place fully organized in the coming month and look out for a Open House sometime in November. We’ll certainly send you an invite!
