This year the WSP Christmas exhibition will be held in the Garden Gallery at Farnham Museum. An excellent venue and a great opportunity to have your pots on show. It will be held over the weekend of 17th and 18th November, which coincides with Art in Clay at The Maltings.
We would like to encourage all members to exhibit some of their work, which can be for sale or not if you would prefer. More information closer to the date, but in the mean time if anyone would like to volunteer to help in some way or in particular have contacts/expertise in printing, please get in touch (firstname.lastname@example.org)
A final reminder for the Joanna Howells demo this weekend. There are plenty of people booked so it should be a really good session….but room for a few last minute attendees if you can make it.
In case you hadn’t noticed……a new kiln was installed over the summer….very exciting to have something specifically built for WSP. Look forward to seeing what it can do!
The large teapot on the fire surround next to the kitchen door in the Smith & Causey cafe is thought to belong to a lady in WSP. Since the cafe is closing, does anyone wish to claim it??
Pots made during a workshop that WSP tutor Kathy Mason ran for the Abbey School using Froyle Tiles empty space are on display at the Schools Art Exhibition, James Hockey Gallery, UCA. First prize was awarded to a planter and the judges would have given prizes to the other pieces if they had been able to.
If you are able to go and see the exhibition – Sept. 22 for two weeks, I’m told it’s well worth it!
A WSP member recently obtained a gas kiln from a man in Sevenoaks who asked for the details of the other items he has for sale to be passed on in the hope that members of WSP might be interested. See attached photos.

A big thank you to everyone who turned up to help set up the pot shop this afternoon and for everyone who brought in their pots. The variety of pots is excellent, what a talent bunch of potters we have…..I defy any visitor to leave without snapping up a ‘one off’ bargain!
