While Rita took detailed minutes of the meeting last night, I just had a few.
There will be a survey coming to all pottery people, regarding your preferences for summer Open Studio hours, and several other studio interests. Kuddos to Sarah for putting this together.
Excellent meeting. All who were there contributed and some new and old ideas were tossed around. Questions were asked and answered. Loved having Ryanne and Zoe there part of the time. Well, what do you expect when Zoe is less interested than Mom in people talking, and not cooing over her? Cooing happened before and after, however. We love you, Zoe!
I do remember talking about having more responsibility as students for cleaning up where we had been working. One area to think about is the sink. To keep excessive amounts of clay from going into the little collection jar under the sink, we should be washing our hands in the big blue barrel first before then doing final rinses in the sink. I know I'd forgotten this routine lately, so I reminded myself and everyone else. It's simple to put all that clay into the big blue barrel instead of into the trap. All clay studios have a system to keep clay from going down the drain...or stopping it up.
More tips will be posted around the studio to keep us aware of the "best ways" of doing things. It's just a matter of education really.
Thanks to Rita, Gale and Sarah for taking care of the management end of things, so we can enjoy the artistic side.
