Do you like playing in the mud? For some people it is a lifetime commitment and you can find out who loves to take the chance to get their hands dirty as part of the North Coast Mud Trail over the weekend of August 17 and 18.
Twenty-one potters from Murwillumbah, Mullumbimby, Bangalow and beyond will open their doors for the weekend for the seventh year running . The mud trail gives everyone a chance to meet the potters and get a behind-the-scenes look at the complex process of making pots – throwing, turning, bisque firing, glazing and gloss firing.
‘There will also be a chance to purchase their work, and many will also be holding workshops and demonstrations over the course of the Mud Trail weekend which allows visitors to get a real taste of the creative process,’ said organiser Greg Furney.
‘This s a unique opportunity to meet local potters, peek inside their studios, view the varied work which they create and chat with the makers about what motivates them.’
Studio doors will be open from 10am till 4pm on both days. For more information go to North Coast Mud Trail for an interactive map of the studio locations and for a Workshop/Demonstration program or pick up a print brochure.
