Warwick potters turn clay into presents
SELLING platters, pots, woodwork, figurines and much more - the Warwick Potters Club's 2014 Christmas sale came to a close on Saturday afternoon.
"If people want something unique like we've got they've got to come and see us," club president Raye Batham said.
"A lot of the smaller items sold very well.
"We're just happy to show off our work."
Pieces ranged in price from as little as $3 through to $75.
The club, which boasts 25 members will recommence classes on Tuesday February 3, next year.
Tuesday mornings and Wednesday afternoons are open to adults while kids classes will be held once a month, kicking off on Saturday, February 7.
"Each potter is given their own area to display and sell their original, one-off pieces," member Jan Laws said.
"I could pot every day. I was a painter originally but always wanted to try pottery so after a few classes I signed up. That was two years ago."
New member Robert Laws, joined up through his wife Jan but said he is enjoying the new skill set.
"It's something to do in retirement and keep the brain active," he said.
Although the gallery on Horsman Rd has officially shut up shop for the year, Mrs Batham said anyone doing last-minute Christmas shopping should call 0402 307 637.
"If anyone would like to pick up a unique gift they are more than welcome to ring me," she said.
