From The President

Hi everyone, as some of you will already know, on the 28th of November I reluctantly resigned from the Cerameco executive organising committee. This decision was not taken lightly and was due to a perfect storm of health issues within my family, none of them immediately life threatening, but all of them serious.

On the 5th of December a decision was made by the remaining Cerameco committee members to disband Cerameco, and to not continue with preparations for hosting the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart in 2018.

I am sorry for disappointing those of you who were looking forward to coming to Hobart.

I would also like to thank those of you who offered your advice and support to me, personally and professionally in the last three years it meant a lot and I am grateful.

Kim Foale


Tasmanian Ceramics Association.

Open Studio. Thursday and Friday this week.

Are you looking for some studio time to work on a project of your own? Want to share skills and knowledge with other potters of all levels in a relaxed and friendly space?

The TCA studio is now open on Thursday evenings as a collaborative co-working space. Come along, have a cuppa and share your experiences, experiments, failures and successes with other potters while working on your own projects. Drop in for half an hour or the whole five hours, after work, before dinner, whatever suits you. No RSVP necessary!

Cost: Free (TCA members), $10 (non-members)

This Friday is the first friday of the month and our President Kim Foale will again be opening up the TCA studio from 10 am – 1pm.

Come along and see the studio, enquire about memberships or just browse our library.

Bring along some clay and make a pot or three.

There *might* also be some cake.



Annual General Meeting 2015

Members are invited to attend the Tasmanian Ceramics Association’s AGM which will be held at the TCA studio in G Block at Cosgrove High School Glenorchy on the 11th of August at 6 pm.

The order of business will include the election of new office bearers and the induction of a new Life Member.

If you have a couple of hours a month to spare please consider joining the TCA committee either as an office bearer or as an ordinary committee member. As the TCA, in partnership with The Tasmanian College of the Arts is hosting the Australian Ceramics Triennale in Hobart in 2018, it is a very exciting time to be involved with ceramics in Tasmania.

The AGM will be followed by a very (VERY) short ordinary general meeting.

Please bring along a plate of finger food to share.

I look forward to seeing you on the 11th

Kim Foale
