WSP member and founder of Farnham Local food, Robert Simpson set up an event with WSP tutor Kathy Mason to run a cob workshop. The aim was to decorate the cob oven Farnham Local Food have built.
The oven looks amazing and anyone local who hasn’t checked out Farnham Local Food should, it is a fabulous enterprise.
Kathy’s payment was a wonderful box of veg, which she was delighted with.
Congratulations to WSP tutor Kathy who (missed the annual lunch!), but ran 5K in 35 minutes instead to raise £100 for charity. GOOD WORK!…..and now she thinks she has the bug…..so watch out for anyone doing laps of the workshop!!
Thanks Isobel for sending the pictures of the delicious looking food made by everyone attending the lunch last Sunday. Hope you all had a good time.
We will be publishing the date of the Summer Lunch 2015 at the beginning of the Autumn term so that everyone has it in their diaries for next year.
Thank you to Julia for organising the films. If anyone or group of people have any ideas for the lunch next year, perhaps with a Raku session, then let me know closer to the time. In the past the end of term party has been held by members for members and has included pit firings in peoples gardens……!
Annie Hardy, WSP member for approx 3 years, has been accepted to do a full time 2 year MA at the Royal College of Art starting in September. She will be much missed. Her energy, innovation and sometimes ‘off the wall’ approach to ceramics has inspired everyone. We wish her all the very best and promise to attend her degree show.
The Southern Ceramic Group will be holding their Summer Exhibition in the wonderful setting of the Bishop`s Kitchen, accessed from the Chichester Cathedral precincts, to be held from Saturday 26th July to 11th August. This year we have over 40 ceramicists exhibiting, plus we will be showcasing work by several new members to our Group. There will be an exciting and diverse collection of ceramic pieces made by members of the Southern Ceramic Group who range from professional potters to relative new-comers. The work on show will be wide ranging in style from functional to sculptural, from stoneware to raku and smoke fired pieces.
The event will be stewarded by those exhibiting so there will be a chance to meet the makers during the two weeks of the event. The Bishop`s Kitchen provides a lovely setting and we are sure that you will be inspired by the beautiful ceramic pieces on show. Entry to the Exhibition is free and opens daily from 10am to 5pm.
