Isis Town and Country - - News -

THE Fire­house Pot­ters will host this year’s Wide Bay-Bur­nett Pot­tery con­ven­tion on Oc­to­ber 17 and 18 in the Isis Cul­tural Cen­tre.

The con­ven­tion will draw del­e­gates from as far as Char­ters Tow­ers.

This year, tu­tors in­clude well-known Ku­randa pot­ter Mol­lie Bos­worth, Nobb Creek’s Renton Bish­opric and ex­pert glazer Isaac Pattmore.

Alice McLaugh­lin brings lo­cal tal­ent to the ta­ble with her sculp­ture demon­stra­tion.

Demon­stra­tions will be run­ning through­out the event, fea­tur­ing the in­di­vid­ual skills of lo­cal pot­ters.

Ap­prox­i­mately 70 del­e­gates are ex­pected to swell the pop­u­la­tion of Childers over the two-day event.

The del­e­gates will have the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence all that Childers has to of­fer, from the re­gion to the lo­cal pro­duce.

This year marks the 40th an­niver­sary of the Wide Bay-Bur­nett Pot­tery As­so­ci­a­tion Con­ven­tion.

The com­mu­nity is in­vited and the pot­ters would like to thank all the peo­ple that help to bring this event to­gether.
