Most times when you want something to happen you have to do it yourself. Along with my cousins we have assessed the demand for a school of the arts with an emphasis on vessel making. We are making plans for music, photography and environmental studies but my focus is clay so that's what I will be working on.
We are planning a Pinecroft School of the Arts Discovery meeting in October for people that are interested We need to raise money to build the heart of the program which will include a large wood fired kiln and a gas fired car kiln to focus on atmospheric firings. Pinecroft is an idyllic setting and the idea of the school was my late aunt and uncle's dream. We will make it happen! We are kicking off the idea with a fall workshop that can include music and dinner.
The workshop will be Friday night, Saturday and Sunday and will include coffee breaks, lunch at the Green Frog Tea Room both days. You can also stay for the Saturday evening dinner and cash bar with New Zealand Acoustic guitar wizz Graham Wardrop- Hall of Famer in NZ.http://www.grahamwardrop.com/
Life doesn't get much better than this.
