Do you love the Waikato Society of Potters? Would you like to help shape decisions and the future of our club?
The word committee always sounds a bit formal! However, we are putting a call out to anyone who would like to become a member of the committee. As an incorporated society it is vital that we have a committee to support our members and make important decisions. The WSP literally would not exist (the way it does today) without our wonderful committee members. If you value the society, please consider joining. Meetings are once a month for an hour via Google meets on Wednesday at 6pm + volunteering for events.
Expressions of interest: firstname.lastname@example.org
Throw down your clay next weekend!
A friendly reminder that The Mighty Waikato Pottery Throwdown will be taking place next Saturday 25th of Feb at 2pm! All members are welcome, bring a kai and yourself along for a fun afternoon. If you'd like to register, please click here.
We have received so much feedback from you all, wanting to learn more about the mysteries of glazing! We are going to start off with a general Glaze101 on Saturday the 4th of March (2-5pm, hosted by the lovely Yasmin Davis). We are looking into tutors and dates for the rest of the year, just wanted everyone to know... You have been heard!
Clear Glaze: We are in the midst of testing a new cone.6 clear glaze. This has been an ongoing mission. Fingers crossed!!
We have a small selection of work from our last wood firing on display in the cabinet at the studio. It will be available for inspiration over the next few weeks.
