A VERY WARM WELCOME TO OUR GROUP.
The purpose of the following pages is to give you an oversight of how our group operates and fill you in on some of the rules.
We presently have about 20 designated potters that come under the BMCAC umbrella. Our group ranges in experience from beginners to fairly experienced potters with tertiary qualifications.
We have a permanent group of members that meet on Monday nights 6:30pm – 9:00pm in the pottery yurt at the Centre. Monday group members pay $5 per visit to help cover electricity costs. This group are generally potters who have had some experience with pottery and work independently with support and help from each other. This group contains both hand builders and throwers. Newcomers are always welcome – just appear at the door. At times this group can get quite large and our room is small, so opening another night for experienced potters is always an option.
This term we will be offering a beginners class that will cover hand building and throwing for adults on Wednesday night 6:30pm – 9:00 pm. Ingrid is teaching the first 4 wks hand building and I will be do the last 4 wks teaching throwing.
We will also be running a class for school age children on Monday and Tuesday afternoons from 4:00 pm – 5:30 pm.
