Origin – our west Wales’ artsits and makers gallery at 23 King Street, Carmarthen – is celebrating everything handmade in the first of a series of Meet the Maker days on Saturday June 8th.
There will be demonstrations of glass bead making from Grayjean glass………loom weaving with Joanna Kingston of Esgair Fibres…….. flower pressing with Lesley Jones………. marbling with Jude Riley……… and pottery with Yoka Kilkelly of Siramik. Workshops will be held throughout the day with Yoka and Jude – clay forming and pot marbling. Come along and try your hand!
Oh…..and your truly will be there to talk about the basics of kiln-fusing.
It all starts at 10 and runs through until 5. If the weather is kind to us, Yoka will have her wheel outside…..children – and adults – will be able to throw their own pot. Wine will flow and nibbles will be distributed.
So if you’re a regular at Origin and you’ve ever wondered how we create our work, come along and find out. And if – shame on you – you’ve never been to Origin, June 8th would be a perfect time to visit us!
See you there!
