Raku glaz­ing back at event

Whanganui Midweek - - News - By PAUL BROOKS

The Wan­ganui Pot­ters’ So­ci­ety’s an­nual Art in the Gar­den will be held for the sec­ond year run­ning at Frances Tay­lor’s QT Nurs­ery in Pa­paiti Rd.

The venue, a river­side ru­ral gar­den, is just out­side the town bound­ary in up­per Aramoho, where Frances has her own plant nurs­ery, spe­cial­is­ing in na­tives. There will be plant sales on the week­end of the event.

This is the sixth Art in the Gar­den and will fea­ture all kinds of out­door art and craft in­clud­ing wooden fur­ni­ture, painted art­work, mo­saics, pal­let craft and sculp­tures.

“Ba­si­cally, it’s all things that can go out­side,” says so­ci­ety trea­surer Pauline Wal­ton.

Her own work will be on dis­play over the week­end.

Ad­mis­sion to the week­end’s event is free, although vis­i­tors will be en­cour­aged to buy raf­fle tick­ets for some good prizes. Tea and cof­fee will also be avail­able “and maybe a bis­cuit or two”.

Guest artists have been in­vited to con­trib­ute to the ex­hi­bi­tion.

“We strive to get a new se­lec­tion of artist and their crafts each year,” says Pauline.

Club mem­bers will be show­ing peo­ple how to “play with clay”, plus, be­cause it was so pop­u­lar last year, peo­ple will be able to have a go at glaz­ing a raku piece.
