The Farnham pottery will be attending local fetes this year with the objective of supporting communities and promoting the Farnham Pottery as a ‘Centre for creative making to inspire and educate’.
Ceramics – Farnham Pottery Arts Programme – Eco Cinema – Theatre – Wood and Stone Sculpture – Yoga – Creative Writing – Bread Making, Cakes and Café – Art Classes – Exhibitions – Pottery Shop
This is a chance to show the breadth of creative activity underway at the site and engage people in a dialogue around access to making.
Specifically, the events being supported are:
Farnham Transition Town and Farnham Local Foods – Gostrey Meadow Farnham – Saturday 10 June
Chiddingfold Fete – Sunday 11 June
Wrecclesham Fete -Sunday 25 June
The old Citroen van will attend each event and among other things it would great to have some pottery making activity being demonstrated –
Please let me know if you are able to volunteer at any of these events. If we were able to show some throwing on a kick wheel, that would be fantastic.
A great opportunity to get involved with the buzz at Farnham Pottery and showcase what a creative community we are.
These Raku ammonites made by Jayne Webley, who attends one of our sculpture classes are a wonderful example of what can be achieved with raku. Stunning and easily mistakable for the real thing – great talent!
Thanks to Graham and Jane who attended the Raku workshop for these pictures. Some lovely results. and a great use of horse hair.
There are a couple of spaces left on Monday 3rd and Monday 10th July 2-4pm if anyone else is interested in having a go.
Someone has dropped out of this Wednesdays Raku session. If anyone would like to take the place, please let me know it’s 2-4pm (likely to over run). £10 for Members.
Bisque pots should be pre-glazed, but if your work is small, Kathy will be there from 1pm and it can be done on the day.
Adele is a member of West Street Potters, it would be great if you could support her.
There is a day workshop on 20th May and an exhibition of her work from 16th – 26th May, with the private view on Friday 19th.
Short film (from a previous course at Wobage Farm) showing some of the techniques that will be demonstrated by Patia on 17th June at WSP.
Patia will be sharing some secrets of her vocabulary of alluring and lively mark-making in slip-decoration. Patia places a strong emphasis on experimentation, both in technique and design approach. Her decorated slabs are formed into humped moulded dishes and bakers.
A very interesting style and inspiring to watch. There are still places available on 17th June so please get in touch to book a place.
