The Pit firing scheduled for the 28 /29th October has been postponed to 2024 due to the many events filling the rest of the year. Please register your interest through the website for either a workshop - (run by Chris Dunn) or a club firing
Special thanks to NZCT for their support in making the new clay recycling station possible. NZCT kindly funded the installation of new gates for this area, as well as some repair. They also funded the pug-mill that will be utilised as soon as the clay is ready. The clay is currently soaking in the baths seen in this image.
“Buy a Brick” campaign is being launched to support The Kilns financially.

Thanks for your ongoing support.
All welcome to sell their Pottery goods at this year's Arts Trail - same rules as Gallery. This year the Whakaaro Whakairo carving and weaving symposium is being held at the Race Course at the same time, so there is likely to be more visitors than usual.
We will set up under the eaves or outside in the garden area.
We will offer light refreshments this year. Drinks, toastie sandwiches bikkies etc.
You can set up your own table (club tables can be used) or leave priced goods to be set up by us. Work will need to be set up by 9.30am and brought inside Saturday and Sunday evenings both weekends after 4pm.
Please consider being on the help roster - it's not compulsory if you can't but some time over the two weekends would be most welcome.
20 October: price sheets will be available for your completion - as per Gallery and FOPs -2 copies
20 October: Help sheet will be on entrance table with jobs for you to put your name to. We will need help in kitchen, sales, set up and down, security. See sheet.

2 November: Other work for self set up or by us should be on the main work table priced and with price sheet.
That's all for now. I'm sure I've forgotten something important. So get your pots together, and add a space for helping on your calendar. It is always a fun time, so please join us.

The Kiln rooms finished work shelves are packed to bursting and have been for a couple of months now. We are going to do a organise and clean up before the big rush at end of year for FOPs.
There is some difficulty in being able to keep track of what has been there for a week vs what’s been sitting for months. Next weekend every single bisque and glazed item sitting on the members work shelves will be identified with a small yellow sticker.
Please ensure you drop by over the next month to check whether you have any work here and take it home if you do.
Any work still with a yellow sticker at the 25th and 26th November will either be used for the public Raku the following weekend or will be disposed of.
If you have any questions, please reach out to your friendly kiln team.
Thank you for your time and cooperation,
Rod, Kaye, Luci, Jennie B, Michelle, Raelene and Emma.
