Waikato Society of Potter is very happy to work with you to customise a fun filled session for your social club or community group - call or email manager Trish Seddon to discuss: firstname.lastname@example.org
The WSP is active in the community through:
- Giving demonstrations at public libraries, art festivals and community events.
- Collaborating with community outreach organisations such as Scout and Guide groups
- Helping in schools – encouraging teachers to offer clay experiences to their students and supporting them at no profit to the WSP
- Assisting home-schooled students with ceramic modules
- Encouraging all people to learn and gain from the pleasure of pottery regardless of whether they are members of the organisation or not
- Sharing our rooms with corporates and organisations for team building events, often supplying our teaching staff
- Encouraging disabled people to enjoy interaction with clay and with members eg: IHC,Canteen Kids
- Working with cutting edge programmes such as “Integrated Art” where art studios around the Waikato are offered at cost to support peoples with disabilities in the creation of artworks
- Offering classes to the public, both adults and children. People do not have to be members to attend these classes although members do enjoy discounted fees.
- WSP contracts with Otago Polytechnic to deliver the studio practice component of the Otago Polytechnic Ceramics Diploma course. This is offered to students from Central North Island region and participants do not need to be members and frequently are not.
