Titirangi Studio Potters
Website: www.titirangipot.co.nz

Titirangi Potters, founded in 1974, was formed to promote and teach clay-working skills in a friendly social environment.

The club was originally based in the old community house in Rangiwai Road. In 2002, Waitakere City Council built the new Titirangi Community House alongside the hall and library in Titirangi Memorial Park on South Titirangi Road, with the Titirangi Potters’ studio accommodated beneath.

The club offers classes for people keen to learn how to create in clay. Once they are able to work independently, potters are able to join the club and have access to the studio and facilities anytime that classes aren’t running.

The studio has 2 gas-fired kilns, two electric kilns, five potters’ wheels, and everything that an aspiring potter needs to make amazing works in clay. Club night is Thursday, when members get together in the studio to create, chat, and share ideas. Other events such as raku firings, pottery film evenings etc. are organized by the Committee through the year – members are encouraged to share their ideas of what they’d like included in the programme.

Please come down to the studio, or visit our website, www.titirangi pot.co.nz  for info about classes and contact details.
