Join your fellow clay-lovers for the WCA’s annual Winter Social! Bring your favorite potluck item to share. Explore Bellingham’s all-new Burnished Clay Studio. Enjoy a demonstration by Jeremy Noet. View the WCA’s 5’X5’X5’ member show. Swap your old Ceramic Arts books and find some new-to-you ones. Bring your own ceramic creation to participate in our favorite gift-stealing game.
Liz Duarte is going to lead a WCA PIT-FIRE in conjunction with National Clay Week Open Studio on October 13, 2018 from 7 am - 3 pm at Golden Gardens Park! Bring your work ready to load into the fire pit and a potluck item.
Participate in National Clay Week by hosting Open Studios and other events to expose your community to the magic of clay.
Our vision is to celebrate the journey of clay: where it comes from and where it will take us in the future. Let’s unite our lives in a celebration of knowledge, experience, exploration, and joy of clay: the material we all know and love.
Event Description: A night of salad, auctions, and fun, Salad Bowl is a celebration of Pottery Northwest and the people who have found a home here. Guests pick out a salad bowl at the beginning of the night — which they get to take home — and eat dinner off of it! Salad Bowl guests also have the first pick of the ClayFest Northwest exhibition.
Event Description: Foster/White will feature all new work by Seattle sculptor George Rodriguez at this summer’s Seattle Art Fair, which takes place August 2 - 5, 2018 at the Century Link Field Event Center. Rooted in his study of traditional temple guardian figures from around the world, George’s highly individualized ceramic forms reveal the inherent commonality at our core.

Event Description: Join us for a casual evening of soup, art and friends to benefit our ceramics program. This annual event offers a great time sit down with your neighbors, eat some tasty food, and enjoy a laugh together while being entertained by local musicians. We’ll have an array of beautiful, handmade, ceramic bowls filled with a variety of tasty, homemade soups made by Gallery One’s Board of Directors and volunteers. The meal is accompanied by fresh breads and soft drinks and wine or beer for purchase with cookies for dessert.
