The Sydney Royal Easter Show - this Friday

The Sydney Royal Easter Show is basically an Agricultural show in the city.

It is the pinnacle for exhibitors across the State of NSW.  Everything from cows, horses and yes pigs are shown and judged.  In addition there are competitions for exhibitions of produce from different regions which use their local fruit, vegetables or grains to create a large display that makes a collage depicting that region.

And then there is the Art and Craft Pavillion where there are paintings, sculptures, pottery, cake decorating, weaving, knitting, embroidery and many more competing for that winning blue ribbon or even Best in Show award.

So I have been asked to go along with some friends and show the general public how we make our pottery/ceramics.  Exciting but a bit scary too... 

I will have a few pieces on display but will mainly be helping the others with building a huge chicken (or two) and we will be inviting the public to add feathers to the pair.  Sounds like fun?

Come and say hi
