Potters Camp 23-25 July 2010

For novice or experienced potters, this 3 day event will be hosted by Island potter David Holmes who made his home in Shapinsay 10 years ago.

Already an estabished potter in his own right, David established Elwick Mill Ceramics Studio, as well as taking on the challenge of renovating the historical mill itself - a former corn mill dating back to 1887 that fell into disrepair in the 1960’s.

Situated within walking distance of Balfour Village and the ferry port, the 3-day workshop will be held in the grounds of Elwick Mill, and David’s workshop gallery.Supported by experienced potter Gordon Kitchen, ‘Kilns, Clay, Fire & Fun’ is a celebration of kiln building and firing.

Pottery wheels, clay, and glaze materials will be also be available for participants.Instruction and assistance will be available throughout.
