BATS and Cleaning!

Pleased to let you know that the missing items have turned up, which is great!

Now we are hoping some of the missing bats can be returned. 

50 new ones have been put out in the last 6 months, but now the shelves are empty again. We have ordered more, but if you have them at home, please return them.  We request that bats are not removed from the pottery so that this resource is always available to every member.

Additionally, a polite request for members to clean up their workspaces at the end of the class, including the wheels and sink area.  We have new cleaners twice a week (Mon and Wed), but by Friday the workshop is looking messy again. It’s only fair for people attending classes as the end of the week.

Your support and co-operation is appreciated.

Many thanks


Missing storage boxes

Has any member taken home for safe keeping plastic storage boxes?  They are roughly half metre square, still unwrapped, bought for WSP and left in the workshop on May 25th as half term began?

If anyone knows where they are we would be very grateful to have them returned.

A full bin of honey glaze has also gone missing recently, any information on that would also be appreciated.

Funeral of Robert William Leach

Thursday 7th June 2018 at the catholic church of Saint Joan of Arc, 19 Tilford Road, Farnham, Surrey GU9 8DJ at 11 a.m. and refreshments afterwards at the Saint Joan’s Hall (next to the church).

Family flowers only, thank you, but donations are invited to Robert & Sue’s favourite charities: Skillway and CHIKS (Children’s Homes in Kerala State, India).


We are looking to replace our current cleaners.  It is a couple of hours twice a week (once usually at the weekend).

If you know anyone who would be interested, please ask them to get in touch.

Ceramicus Exhibition

We popped into the Ceramicus exhibition today at Farnham pottery.  What a fabulous selection of work by some very talented makers, many of them are members at West Street Potters.

Lois liked the blue dish best….”because it has shells on it”! I am a big fan of Tim Pilsbury’s wood fired bottles.

Great work, lovely exhibition.  It finished today, but hope many of you had the chance to go along and seek some inspiration.
