East Dorset Potters, founded twenty years ago as a branch of the Bridport-based Dorset Pottery Group, was established for potters in the Poole, Bournemouth and Christchurch area. A number of the members exhibit regularly together. The group is an eclectic mix of full-time and part-time potters, some of whom teach or have retired from teaching and some who are simply interested in ceramics.
We meet once a month in our homes, studios or other venues. Sometimes we have practical workshops on a theme, led by one of the group or an invited guest. Other months we may visit a local potter or simply meet socially. We also collectively exhibit our work at several local venues.
