Community effort = part one and part two, the rest etc is up to us

As you know if you follow my blog, I belong to a local pottery group.

We have an exhibition at a local gallery and to create more interest invited the public along for two Sundays to help to make a ceramic sculpture...

Week One we had some great helpers to make with the soft clay...


we supplied the clay and some bisque fired moulds.  Some of our members threw cylinders on the wheel or rolled slabs to make cylinders and cut out shapes ...

Week Two (today) and we supplied underglaze colours for those attending to paint them for us.


What a great job!  

The rest of the work of firing and glazing will be done by members of our group.

What a great idea. Hopefully you will have inspired some new members.

Hi Linda, Elephant's Child and Smart Cat it became as big an event as the exhibition itself as far as organising went... We also had room for children to play with clay. They were able to take theirs home. Everyone was welcome. Some had never used clay before, some not since school and some had a little experience. Many were making enquiries with the Art Centre about classes after having a go. :)
