Residential Pottery Courses in France with Sylph Baier - 14th May to 14th October, 2017
It is mainly throwing based and would suit students with some throwing experience but other techniques can also be covered as well as glazing and firing in electric and gas reduction kiln
Curtis Benzle - Porcelain - Colour and Light - 10th - 16th September 2017
The class is open to everyone.  While in the past we have had many exceptional artists in the class, we have also had many people with no previous experience with clay.  We will require no previous knowledge of ceramics again this year as we will be using specific techniques that do not require any "art talent". 
Jim Malone - 3 Day Throwing Course - 11th - 13th September 2017
Designed for throwers who can throw a bowl and a basic cylinder and would like to get to the next level, revisit already familiar forms and develop them to a higher level.

Auction of Pots for Adopt a Potter Charity – CLAY COLLEGE, STOKE-ON-TRENT

blogclaycoll1

Following the success of the ‘Potters for Aleppo’ auction, we would like to give potters and collectors another opportunity to acquire some great pots and support a very worthy cause. We are inviting you to join us in an auction of pots for the:   ADOPT A POTTER CHARITY – CLAY COLLEGE, STOKE-ON-TRENT

The Adopt a Potter Charity, established since 2009, is working to set up Clay College Stoke, which will help safeguard the future of studio pottery in the UK by offering 14 students a skills-based, full-time 2 year ceramics course. They will be taught by potters who make a living through ceramics, the first of its kind in the UK. To date, Adopt a Potter has raised over £82,000, but needs much more to achieve its goal and currently has a Crowdfunding appeal to support its fundraising.

Our intention is to run a 4 week auction to further support this wonderful cause.

With a magnificent donation from Lisa Hammond the founder of Adopt a Potter and the force behind the Clay College project to start us off, the auction will run from Monday 13 March 2017 – Monday 10th April 2017, closing at 15:00 (GMT)

More detailed information regarding the auction, how to donate, bid and make payment can all be found in the group file Clay College Auction Guidelines

This is a vital project if the next generation of studio potters is to emerge and succeed. Please be generous.

Alan Birchall, Lisa Hammond

Editor: I am convinced that this project – launching “CLAY COLLEGE” will be of huge value to the coming generations of ceramicists/potters and fully support their fund-raising for the new College.
