Gunnedah Pottery Club is thrilled to receive an arts and cultural grant from the Gunnedah Shire Council.
The club used the funds to run a workshop at the Gunnedah Bicentennial Creative Arts Gallery last weekend.
The workshop was facilitated by Max Powell, a renowned master potter from Glen Innes.
“Max was very accommodating in showing the attendees his very successful techniques in making large outdoor water bowl features, platters and bowls with many different shapes, even how to make a bilby,” pottery club member Geoff Dawson said.
“Everyone attending had an absolute magic time. It was very hands-on and everyone went home with a smile on their face each of the two days.”
Mr Dawson said most potter made two to three items over the course of the weekend.
“It was a huge success and we appreciate the Gunnedah Shire Council for making the grant available to get someone as inspiring as Max to Gunnedah’s creative arts centre,” he said.
The Gunnedah Pottery Club members are gearing up to visit Max’s home studio early December when he opens his studio to the public to see what he has created during the year.
The club is also receiving funds from the council under the 365 small grants program for a portable air conditioner.
