Celebrating Salt and Soda

Celebrating Salt and Soda - a weekend workshop
Saturday 12th & Sunday 13th April 2008 Informative and FUN, this two-day workshop, supported by the CPA and hosted at Whichford Pottery, just north of Oxford, will feature practical demonstrations, discussions and seminars by many of Britains'leading exponents of salt and soda firing techniques - Jack Doherty, Ian Gregory, Mark Griffiths, Lisa Hammond, John Jelfs and Phil Rogers. In addition, Jim Keeling, famous for his big-ware flowerpots, will throw an enormous pot in stages over the 2 days! Two new kilns are being built especially for this event, and weekend workshop visitors will be able to see firings and openings, and be part of the excitement of vapour glazing. A celebratory feast is also planned for the Saturday night.
The weekend will also mark the start of a major selling exhibition of new work in salt and soda by Sheila Casson, Richard Dewar, Jack Doherty, Ray Finch and Winchcombe Pottery, Lisa Hammond, Ian Gregory, Mark Griffiths, John Jelfs, Toff Millway, Phil Rogers, Peter Starkey, Ruthanne Tudball, Sarah Walton and Alistair Young. The exhibition will be held in the spectacular new exhibition space at Whichford Pottery - The Octagon.We expect great interest from the potting community and places are limited; so early booking is advisable! Plenty of good local accommodation is available, and also camping at the village pub.

Tickets £100 (£80 CPA members & concessions)
