Pottery Northwest 2016
2016 has been an awesome year as we've celebrated our 50th anniversary. Thank you for being a part of it! Be sure to check out our slide show below. You helped us with your enthusiasm and creative energy in our studio. You supported exciting and risk taking new exhibitions in our gallery. You partied with us during our fabulous birthday celebration, ClayFest Northwest. You create our unique and inviting community through your participation and generosity. Will you contribute to make next year even better? As the year ends, please join me in making a tax-deductible gift to Pottery Northwest. While the tuition from our classes pays our bills, the gift you make will allow us to fulfill our commitment to being a stronger, more exciting, and more inclusive Pottery Northwest. I'm looking forward to 2017 and the work ahead in our next fifty years. The Wally Grant has made many amazing resident projects possible. We've already started updates to our ventilation system, and will soon move onto the restrooms, and kiln yard. This winter we will pilot a new curriculum for students interested in a professional ceramic practice. With our new scholarship program up and running, the response is so strong, we've had to turn applicants away. I am eager to continue what we've started and we need your help. Help us raise $10,000 to complete our fundraising goal for 2016. Thank you and have a wonderful holiday season.
