events and workshops

Every year we deliver a series of annual events – some are members only and some are open to the public.  We also provide various types of workshops for our members who wish to learn more about the different components of pottery i.e. mould making, slip casting, crystalline glaze making etc… This changes from year to year. 

Ceramic arts and other art events and participation opportunities are listed in our monthly club newsletter. Public events are also listed below and on our socials.

You can get a taste of what our creative members produce for events in our gallery. There are opportunities to purchase selected works from our Shop.

Club Raku Day

May | June | August 2024

Our annual club social generally held in the colder months of June to August. Raku firing is a process by which pottery is fired at a relatively low temperature and then moved, while hot, to a closed container with combustible materials, (such as paper or sawdust) that ignite and cause a reaction creating colours and patterns on the pottery's surface. This is for club members only and there are limited numbers.
