The official opening of new pottery studio ‘Claynglaze’ took place on Sunday October 28 in Pulborough.
A steady flow of visitors passed through to enjoy the demonstrations on the wheel by Matt, inhouse thrower and Lorraine, animal sculptor.
Many signed up to the courses offered having witnessed first-hand the skilful work of both demonstrators.
Proprietors Wendy and John Yates offered nibbles and wine and discussed forthcoming events in January 2019.
The studio aims to serve the local community providing access to pottery for all ages and abilities.
There are also opportunities for home schooling groups and INSET training for teachers.
Wendy’s primary aim is to keep pottery alive and possible despite the ever-decreasing availability to adult and further education in art, due to lack of funding, as well as to share the joy clay has bought to her life over the last 40 plus years with the wider community.
Wendy is also ever grateful for the support of her husband John who built the studio.
