Friday May 31st 8pm   Paula Sutton

Decoupage on ceramics? That’s a bit unusual isn’t it. Well one of our members is quite an expert with this style of decorating on ceramics. Paula Sutton will show us how it’s done and then we will all have an opportunity to decorate a tile.

Friday June 28th 8pm   Grant Pratt

After driving a courier van and laying floors, Grant had a flash of insight after a holiday, realising that he wanted to make pots - although he'd never made any before. Now he is the owner of The Tilehurst Pottery, and Blue Matchbox Gallery. Grant produces handthrown domestic stoneware pottery rooted in traditional country pottery. It's a welcome return visit from Grant to give us a demonstration, and an update of his ever expanding supply of clays, glazed, and tools in the shop.
