CANBERRA Potters’ Society annual student/teacher exhibition is an opportunity to celebrate work created by some of the students, both adults and children, who attend the society’s classes, and the teachers who share with them their skills and love of clay.
A full program of classes is run by the society throughout the year.
Adult classes include sculpture, hand-building and wheel work and provide tuition for both beginners and experienced potters.
There are also facilities for after-school, weekend and holiday classes for children.
The Potters’ Society believes its facilities are probably unique in providing pottery wheels for every student and a range of workshop equipment. Students are taught decorating and glazing techniques and an understanding of firing.
A strong, experienced team of teachers is the other side of the equation – are of them all top potters too.
Canberra Potters’ Society student/teacher exhibition, until July 1, at Watson Arts Centre, Aspinall Street, Watson, Thursday to Sunday 10am – 4pm.
