ANNUAL EXHIBITION 2017
Our Annual Exhibition ran for three days – Friday 10th – Sunday 12th November. It was a great opportunity to view our range of work, and to purchase exquisite, hand-made items at knock-down prices! During the weekend we ran demonstrations of pottery and painting. There were great Christmas gifts, and hopefully we inspired others to join one of our regular groups!
Here’s some examples of the lovely works which were on display.
2017 – Work in Progress
POTTERS’ CHRISTMAS PARTY
Our potters knew how to ‘throw’ a good party (sorry folks…but it is Christmas) this week. Cheers to everyone and they’ll be back ready and raring next year!CHRISTMAS PARTY
Our annual Christmas party took place on Monday December 12. Thanks to everyone who came along and for the terrific organisers. Many thanks.
Congratulations to Mona (here dressed in glorious blue) celebrating her 100th birthday with friends from the centre. Mona has been a staunch supporter of Chorleywood Arts Centre since its inception and we thank her for her tremendous contribution. And thanks to Les (seen in the white shirt) for playing host and holding a marvellous meal.
Christmas Party – ‘Cheers’ everyone!
Help For Heroes
We received a lovely letter from the Help for Heroes Charity thanking us our donation. They said: “Generosity like yours enables the Charity to provide direct, practical support.”
So thankyou to all of you who bought a ceramic poppy which enabled us to make the contribution.
Annual exhibition resounding success
After a rush of sales on the first day at this year’s exhibition – held on Friday 13 and Saturday 14 November – members were asked to bring in extra exhibits! Thankyou to everyone who contributed and of course, to everyone who came along to make the two days a fantastic success.
N.B. £40 was raised for “Help for Heroes” with poppy sales.
This month saw the 90th birthdays of both Cath Sharpe (0n the right of the top photo) and Dorothy Hughes, two of our most longstanding members. (over 25 years each…!)
To celebrate they were taken to lunch at The Gate for a surprise party. It was then back to the centre for a slice of delicious cake.
Congratulations to you both.

July 6 – AGM. Midday

Mosaic Master Class – Sat 18 April 2015
Thanks to Sylvie Bayliss and all those who attended the Mosaic Master Class. It was a resounding success!
Pottery demonstration great success
Thanks goes to Wendy Fowler for her fascinating and instructive pottery demonstration. There was a great turn out to enjoy the morning.
Pottery Demonstration – February 3, 11.30am
It has been suggested that it would be a good idea to have a little get-together of all potters, as we rarely get a chance to meet and exchange ideas/views. So as to tempt you all to come along, Wendy Fowler ( who supplies our clay) will do a small informal pottery demonstration.
She will be here on Tuesday, February 3. Wendy is a very good thrower and hand builder, and I am sure will answer any questions – relating to pottery! – that you put to her. She plans to show us: throwing narrow necked pots, turning do, glazing difficult shapes and hopefully some hand building.
So: I would really like to see as many of you as possible, and most especially the group leaders, at 11.30am. Bring lunch if you like, I will bring some biscuits, and we can have a discussion about what needs doing in the pottery, before Wendy starts her demonstration around one o’clock.
Looking forward to seeing you all.
Thanks all those that came along to our Christmas get together. It’s always lovely to share a drink and have a chat!
December 11th, Midday.
Members are very welcome to bring a small item of food to share.
Plus any art item priced under £12 that they wish to sell.
Hope to see you there!
Pre Christmas Exhibition great success!
We had a great turn out for the annual exhibition with plenty of excellent exhibits. We hope everyone enjoyed it!
AGM – July 7
