A group of ladies from Aurora Women's Institute contacted us in late spring requesting a special introduction to pottery for their group. They decided amongst themselves that they would like to try several new things over the course of a year, and selected pottery as one of them.
We were able to create and offer them a special 2 night introductory course that was taught by Teresa Dunlop. The ladies watched a PowerPoint presentation on masks from around the world and Teresa brought in a finished example for them to view and handle. She provided latex leaves and other texture materials to inspire the group and the ladies got right to work. Each of them successfully completed a piece.
Pinetree Potters Guild was honoured to work with this group of ladies and to help them achieve their 'Try New Things' goal. They had a wonderful time and were very appreciative of us accommodating their request.
