Cleaning Bee - Sat 27th November
Please add your name to the list on the board if you can help. Remember you are required to do one cleaning bee per year or pay the $45.
As advised last month there are no workshops planned for the rest of the year, however, if you have a particular skill in ceramics that you are willing to share with members please let Margaret Hunt know.
Two new artists are exhibiting (and selling their goodies) in the Tote Modern gallery, Kaye Stead and Kay Latham. Kaye, with an "e" is a Ceramicist and Kay, without an "e" is a Watercolour Artist.
They are having an official opening this Thursday, 21 October, at 5.30pm. All are welcome.
Festival of pots 2022
The team has had several meetings and are now well on the way to getting the 2022 festival underway. The postcards will be ready for the Kapiti Arts Trail (The Arts Trail 2021 will take place on 6/7 and 13/14 November 2021.) so please do have these on display if you are exhibiting.
Kylie is managing the website and the Festival page has now been updated. Registration of interest to exhibit is now open. Remember as a member you do not need to pay the $25 registration fee.
Jenny has engaged our 2022 guest artists. Maria Brockhill, Sue Scobie, and Lee Robertson.
The Festival will only proceed under level 1 but we will be monitoring the government guidelines and will review closer to the time.
Adult classes - are full and we have a sizeable waiting list for the beginner's wheels classes. Emily is organising more classes to try and alleviate this.
Young Persons Classes - Paula will be stepping down from tutoring young people next year.
We will be looking for someone to take these classes. Please contact Stephanie if you are interested.
Holiday classes - for young people will not proceed this holiday as the Adult classes will now extend into this time to make up for classes missed due to lockdown.
Classroom hire - It was agreed by the committee that the classrooms will be available for hire. It is preferred the club runs the classes. The preference to hire the rooms will be given to members however consideration will be given to outside requests on a case-by-case basis.
