MERA’s Pottery Studio
The MERA Pottery Studio at the Schoolhouse is equipped with a slab roller, several wheel stations and a computerized kiln.
It is run as a cooperative, coordinated by Molly Forsythe, 613-278-2556.
The studio is open (except July-August) for potters to enjoy and learn in a co-operative milieu. Group sessions are Monday evenings, Tuesday mornings (mostly full) and Saturdays. Experienced potters may use the studio any time. Everyone using the studio must be a MERA member and first have an orientation session to ensure they can work safely. Pottery costs are $50 for a bag of clay plus one hour a week studio job. Or, you can pay a $50/month fee rather than working if you prefer. There is a fall orientation for newcomers and 2 or 3 special workshops scheduled through the year.
