Pottery fun to be moulded at Childers convention

THE Firehouse Potters will host this year's Wide Bay-Burnett Pottery convention on October 17 and 18 in the Isis Cultural Centre.

The convention will draw delegates from as far as Charters Towers.

This year, tutors include well-known Kuranda potter Mollie Bosworth, Nobb Creek's Renton Bishopric and expert glazer Isaac Pattmore.

Alice McLaughlin brings local talent to the table with her sculpture demonstration.

Demonstrations will be running throughout the event, featuring the individual skills of local potters.

Approximately 70 delegates are expected to swell the population of Childers over the two-day event.

The delegates will have the opportunity to experience all that Childers has to offer, from the region to the local produce.

This year marks the 40th anniversary of the Wide Bay-Burnett Pottery Association Convention.

The community is invited and the potters would like to thank all the people that help to bring this event together.
