As always, thank you for your ongoing support! We would love to hear your feedback about what you've seen on this page, as well as what you would like to see more of in the future.
We have 5 FREE places available for members to attend one of Freya Gabie's workshops to create a ceramic sculpture that represents your connection with Poole/how you feel about Poole.
Our twinning town, Stoke-on-Trent, have already had their ceramic workshops and it was a great success, you can read all about it on the blog, and now it is Poole's turn!
The one-day workshop will run over two days (Tues 7th Sep 10.00am - 12.00pm & Tues 14th Sep 10.00am - 12.00pm) and the creations will go on display at an exhibition on Friday 17th September before being shared out to all participants. The workshops will take place at The Spire in Poole High Street and anyone is welcome to pop by and see what is going on!
If you and 4 friends/colleagues are interested in taking part in this workshop, please email me at email@example.com as soon as possible.
There will be more information about the project in August's newsletter or please follow / contribute
to Freya's interesting blog here: https://allfiredupproject.tumblr.com
As part of Freya's All Fired Up programme in September, we will also be holding a member's event to walk around Poole Quay with Freya to discover more about the history of the ceramic tiling in Poole.
