Come and meet the Wirral Potters on the weekend on the 20th and 21st of May, when there will be an oppportunity to buy directly from the artisans with finely modelled figurative groups and stylistic bird sculptures, functional thrown ware and other colourful, decorative pieces.

 

Wirral Potters was founded in 1973 by a group of enthusiastic local potters, eager to exchange ideas, develop their craft and hold annual exhibitions of their work. The first exhibition was held in the disused waiting room of Hoylake Station!
Since that first event, the group has been invited to hold exhibitions throughout the North West.

 

Full members have successfully exhibited at Potfest as well as having their work for sale in a number of well-known galleries throughout Great Britain. An Associate Membership is open to aspiring potters who perhaps do not have the knowledge or set up to work independently.

 
The Showcase Exhibition within the Della Robbia pottery collection at the Williamson Art Gallery allows each member of the group to exhibit 4 of pieces of work over the six weeks of the exhibition, whilst the Table Sale will enable the group to display for sale a greater range of work over the weekend of 20/21 May. During the course of the weekend, members will hold a series of demonstrations of how to produce their work, ranging from throwing, hand building and decorating.

 

Please note that the gallery is closed on Mondays and Tuesdays.
