Independent potters are a valuable asset to View. Potters volunteer in our annual pottery events by making bowls and other vessels to be sold. These events include the Chili Bowl in February and our Ice Cream Social in August. There are also opportunities for potters to sell their work in the gift shop and at events.
An integral part of the independent potters program is the Potter Circle. Every Monday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., independent potters gather to discuss ideas and techniques. This is a valuable opportunity to meet with those who know our studio best. Mondays are typically kept clear of classes so that independent potters have time to work.
