They are so close to having the funds to open the pottery to the rear of the Poly - they have the kilns, equipment, wheels, space and a very experienced pottery manager, but need to raise the final £3,500 to get the power supply and ventilation. When open it will offer workspace for 5 makers, community courses for clients of local charities, like St Petrocs, pottery courses, 1:1 throwing tuition, and kiln firing service. They have set up a silent auction on www.jumblebee.co.uk/polypot
To hit their target they need to reach the max amount of people who might be interested in bidding online. Work has been donated by Jane Smith, John Howard, Felix Packer, Karl Owen, Tim Lake, Paula Downing, Peter Webster, Dot Serle, Claire Ogden,Jane Howard,Yolanda Mack, Michel Francois, Colin Meir, Clementine Neild, Esther Connon, Lesley Harry and lots more. The auction continues until April 28th. Most work can be posted and packed to anywhere in the UK by arrangement.
