JOHN TUCKWELL’S WORKSHOP Thin coloured porcelain slabs

It was fantastic – we all enjoyed it, and some lovely work was produced. It did get a bit hot (unseasonally hot) on the first day, but John’s skills and our interest in his techniques kept us on task and interested. The workshop was oversubscribed, and we hope to run another one next year after Smoke on the Water.

The Regional Outreach Awards went to
Leisa Gunton –  has presented to her group in Conondale
Tamara Sladojevic – presenting to a group in Agnes Water on Dec 4th
Julie Wall – presenting to a group at the Cooroy Butter Factory Pottery, 28th October
Congratulations from the CCE committee.

Some feedback:
“I will take away the knowledge I have gained and present it to the Cooroy community of potters”
“It was a well planned and well executed workshop with humour and skill.  Also thanks to his assistant/partner Gloria who was always in the right place at the right time”
“I came home feeling so inspired“
‘I learnt about the amazing flexibility and endurance of paper porcelain”.
“Thank you for providing the photo record of John’s demonstrations there was so much information”
“Really affordable price of workshop – great value for money.”
