Welcome to the MERA Pottery Studio
We are a joyful group of 14+ potters share space, tools and experience in the basement of the MERA Schoolhouse.
We are organized as a co-operative, sharing responsibility for making our studio a fun, open, supportive and safe place to enjoy creating works in clay both on and away from the wheel. Each studio member is encouraged to participate in both individual and collective projects, to contribute to studio maintenance tasks, and to teach and learn from the other potters. MERA potters also organizes learning and teaching opportunities in the form of in-house workshops and sessions led by professional potters; contribute to the Annual MERA Christmas Fair; participate in the outreach project “Empty Bowls”, and offer ceramics workshops in the local schools.
For the fall/winter of 2018 we hope to sponsor a tea pot workshop, a workshop on working with earthenware, and an outdoor firing - possibly fun introductions to the world of ceramics!
Studio Members must be members of MERA:
* MERA annual membership fee: $30.00 individual / $50.00 family

Purchasing clay through the studio covers the cost of glazes, firing, and the use of tools and equipment.
At present there are three groups of potters meeting regularly:
Monday evenings 7:00 to 9:00
Tuesday evenings 7:00 to 9:00
