All day on Saturday, May 3, visitors to Westmoore Pottery will be given a hands-on opportunity to try working on the potter's wheel. Westmoore Pottery welcomes both adults and children to participate. During any lulls between adventurous "try-it-yourselfers," Westmoore Pottery will be demonstrating pottery skills on the wheel.
"Wear your old clothes," warns potter Mary Farrell, "just in case the clay doesn't go only where you want it to!"
There is no charge for this event. However, if visitors wish to contribute, donations will be accepted and given to the North Carolina Pottery Center to support its programs. A kiln load of pottery will also be opened and available for viewing and sale beginning at 9 a.m. that morning.
Potters David and Mary Farrell are often named among a handful of the best traditional potters in the nation today. Their work is found in museums and private collections around the country.
Westmoore Pottery is located at 4622 Busbee Road, near Seagrove, and is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
