Mission Arts Pottery
Mission Arts secured funding for a Pottery Studio in 2013 and in late 2014 a modest shed was erected for the specific purpose of our Community Members to explore the world of Ceramics (pottery and sculpture).
In September 2015 we commenced regular Saturday Potting Days at Mission Arts Pottery, giving the group a name - 'The Mudslingers' (which we thought most appropriate for a group consisting of experienced potters alongside first-timers just finding their way)! The aim of Mission Arts Pottery group is to provide a centre of creativity for ceramic art - especially pottery - bringing like-minded artists together to inspire and motivate each other in the world of three dimensional art. Formal pottery courses are arranged from time to time when the need arises. Workshops by both visiting and local artists are conducted regularly at the studio and we look forward to presenting more in the future.
Mission Arts Pottery is managed by the Mission Arts Executive Committee, with input and feedback from our core group of dedicated and experienced potters. The Studio is open for experienced potters daily from 10am-2pm (except Christmas Day & New Year's Day). Daily session fees are $7.50/Mission Arts Member; $10/Non-Mission Arts Member. Daily session fee includes use of the space and basic tools. Cost for materials, including glazing and firing, are additional. Clay is available for sale at the studio. Everyone is welcome, though Studio access is dependent on level of competency. Mission Arts membership is a prerequisite for unsupervised Studio access. Introductory and beginner courses, workshops, and supervised experiences are offered from time to time.
