Fall Sale – November 4, 2017
Our next sale is Saturday, November 4, 2017
10 am to 4 pm at Desert Gardens
This is a free event and all are welcome.
This event is a great chance for pottery lovers in Kamloops and the surrounding area to connect with working potters and clay artists.
There is a lot of learning and exploration that goes on over the spring and summer in a potter’s studio, and fall is often a time when ideas come to fruition. Our atmospheric firings workshop in May, for instance, will certainly have influenced some pieces.
While many of us are in other sales throughout the fall, this is a unique opportunity to get together as a group of clay artists. It gives us a chance see what our colleagues have been creating and get inspired by the creative pieces that each person brings.
We also love to talk with you about our craft, so feel free to engage with your favourite artisans.
We look forward to seeing you on November 5th.
