Events at ASP
Our current artist in residence John Dawson will be exhibiting and selling his work at the Pool Room from the 20th of March - 2nd April.
Please join us for the opening at 11:30am on Wednesday, bring a plate of nibbles to share for morning tea.
John Tuckwell, who will be visiting us in March to hold a workshop (now sold out!), will be giving a free talk to our members on Thursday the 28th of March at 7pm. He will take us through his journey with clay, and chat about issues which someone early in their career will no doubt find insightful.
There will be a Q&A session after the talk.
All welcome, please bring a plate to share.
ASP is very excited to host John Tuckwell from Australia, who will be holding a weekend workshop focusing on constructing pieces made from coloured porcelain slip.
