In its 17th year, the Pottery Expo is based on the concept of the Marche de Potiers (Potters Markets) of France. It's an opportunity for potters to show their fabulous work directly to the public. This expo in Warrandyte was instigated by local studio potter Jane Annois, and turned into an annual event. Around 60 exhibitors are selected and invited by a panel to showcase some of the best creative potters. Check out the event page and list of exhibitors for more details.
After the opening by the Manningham City Council and the Warrandyte Bendigo Community Bank and the presentation of awards, you can look forward to some sweet sounds to relax to. French crepe maitre Stephane le Grand will be there with delicious savoury and sweet crepes to delight your tastebuds. Ice Indulgence will help you cope in the heat with ice creams, sundaes, smoothies, sorbets, yoghurts with fresh fruits and more.
Rob Dolan Wines is new to the Potter Expo this year, and will be tantalising you with wine tastings on Saturday. You can buy wine by the glass and that should help ease you into the Saturday night festivities at the Expo site.
Atop workshops, Slow Clay Centre will be providing some free artist talks and panel discussions to get you all fired up and enthused. The Manningham Arts Centre and Clayworks will be offering children's clay workshops all weekend, along with wheel throwing demonstrations for the public. Can't wait!
All levels of experience are welcome. It's directed to both experienced potters interested in new techniques and to beginners who will gain useful information. Everyone will benefit from John's ideas and knowledge. If you need more details, contact Jane Annoise on firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0422 942 216.
