The Australian Ceramics Association is hosting a wonderful opportunity to see inside a potter's studio and discover the different stages of the creative process on August 17-18.
You can experience some live demonstrations and hands-on play, have a cuppa and perhaps some soup and pick up some original, handmade ceramics at reduced prices.
Every studio has something different to offer for young and old between 10am and 4pm. Entry is free.
At the studio of Port Macquarie artisan Aleisa Byfield you can take part in a communal work of art and also pour your own ceramic beeswax candle and get a glimpse into her bee keeping operation.
Stay for as little or as long as you like and why not make a morning or afternoon of visiting studios along the Mid North Coast to see inside their creative practices.
Maps with participating artists are available at Sunset Framing and Gallery, Riot Art and Craft and various cafes around town.
