The first weekend of the month is almost with us again. This is an exciting time to be in Waikouaiti as you can visit a painter, a potter, and a weaver and see their work and their studios. So do visit us, and Marion Day, we are open the first weekend of the month, Saturday and Sunday afternoons, 1pm -5pm.
As the warmer weather approaches, we hope!..., Marion Day and ourselves are considering opening more frequently. We will try opening most Sunday afternoons from this month onwards and may also begin to fling the door open other times too. As we are a working studio, and I have kilns to fire and pots to glaze, things sometimes come up that make it impossible for us to open the door. We will put signs out and, in our case, fly the flag when we are open. If you are making a special trip to see our work, it is a good idea to give a ring first to make sure that we are open.
If you are driving to Waikouaiti, why not combine it with a visit to the Gallery On Blueskin at Waitati? The gallery is the first building you come to on the left as you turn off the main road on the big bend at blueskin bay. The gallery is situated just before the garden center entrance. The gallery is holding its Spring Show at the moment. The show runs until 11 October. Laura and I are two of the 13 artists taking part.
