A few members got together over the past week or so to give the guild a bit more organization. When you have to work with so many different members, and teach classes and have so much work to fire, it can all get a bit chaotic. We are also introducing a few new instructors over the coming months and we need a teaching space that is easy for everyone to use and feel comfortable with. So with that in mind, we took the space that we had been saving for rental and re-purposed it as a our new glazing area. Out is the hodge-podge of containers in a cluttered hallway and in came some semblance of order.
June went out and purchased buckets for dry ingredient, Carolyn dragged her husband with her to buy heavy shelves and bring them to the guild, and Karina brought her lovely husband with her to do some of the building work. Then the rest of us there helped dismantle, move, sweep, fetch , carry and with satisfaction start to see the back area of bedlam suddenly start to make sense. It is nowhere near finished yet, but we have a direction and as we are all volunteers, it is so wonderful the time everyone has been putting into this job. Thank you to everyone who has helped and given their time to this transformation.
Now when classes start in the next few weeks, there is a dedicated area to glaze, clear areas for work that is waiting to be fired, and it will help everyone keep things in the right place.
