The WSP Winter Exhibition welcomed 300 guests through the doors of the Garden Gallery at Farnham Museum this weekend. The visitors book recorded some excellent feedback on the range and quality of the work on show and there were plenty of sales too. Well done and thank you to everyone who took part.
Wonderful to see so many WSP members showcasing their talents and inspiring to see work in a splendid setting.
It was fabulous to see so many of you at the Private View on Friday evening. Thank you to everyone who brought along nibbles, I especially liked Mark’s homemade bread sticks….don’t think I was the only one who tucked in!
Thank you to Ian Chrystie for the photos, they capture the wonderful venue and the light perfectly.
Good job everyone!

This has been an exciting year so far. In March I took part in Ceramic Art London at the Royal College of Art. It was a sell out show.
Later in the year I exhibited at the Stour Gallery and the Porthminster Gallery. This December I will be showing my work at Contemporary Ceramics, London, as part of their Christmas exhibition.
There were two main highlights to 2012. Firstly, I visited Japan, where I made a range of tableware as part of a longer-term project. Secondly, my inclusion in the much admired Domestic Matters exhibition at Contemporary Applied Arts, London.
Peter Ting and Brian Kennedy curated Domestic Matters. It formed part of London Design Festival.
The Garden Gallery at the Farnham Museum will host the West Street Potters Winter Exhibition on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th November.
Open from 9:00am to 5:00pm each day, it will showcase a sample of work from the 146 students who attend tutored classes at Farnham Pottery. The work is representative of both beginners and experienced potters and the majority will be for sale.
West Street Potters have run classes at Wrecclesham for many years, having moved there from their original premises in West Street, Farnham in 1999. Restoration work is now taking place at the pottery site, hence the move into central Farnham for our exhibition this year.
Come along for an opportunity to see what we do, talk to our potters and buy something unique and individual. www.weststreetpotters.co.uk
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!
South Hill Park would like to invite you to the Opening Reception of their Student Open 2012 exhibition on Saturday 30th June 4-6pm.

South Hill Park’s students include both professional and amateur artists from in and around Bracknell, using the Arts Centre’s facilities to develop their practice and hone specialist skills.
Artists in Residence Samantha Robertson, Holly Barton, Louise Walker and Holly Drewett who currently teach selected ceramics, jewellery & silversmithing, and printmaking courses will also be showcasing examples of their works, created at the Arts Centre.
Come along and have a look at what you could be making!
The exhibition goes on until the end of August if you can’t make the private view.
