Invercargill Potters Inc

Our group has two members meetings per week. One on Monday from 1 to 3pm amd the pther Tuesdays 7-9pm.

Of course members can have a key and use the rooms when they want.

We currently have 30 members with one or two other older folk being 'honorary'.

Although we have not run formal classes for some time, earlier this year we had an open night and this resulted in a new intake such that we had to limit numbers for the ensuing 6 lesson term.

Tutoring was undertaken by proficient club members and resulted in a good increase in our long term membership.

Our Christmas function is to be a raku firing at president Marie Washbourne's place at Otatara and will be a new experience for many of us.

Here are some images of the firing At Marie Washbourne's.
