West Coast Clay Convergence and Woodfire Lottery Registration




OPA has reserved 30 cubic feet of space in April 2020's Pre-Conference woodfire at East Creek Anagama.  This will be a great opportunity for anyone who has a love for the wood fire process or is interested in exploring this firing process.  This is a rather momentous occasion as we'll be firing along side a group from AMOCA and a group of Seattle based potters.  We plan to have a gallery show set up in conjunction with the NWWFC that will be taking place in early June of 2020!!

We will have our 30 Cubic feet of space randomly allocated to any OPA members who are interested in participating.  We plan to have workshares of 1 to 1.5 cubic feet allocated per person depending on the level of interest.  

If you'd like to participate, please register to this event prior to January 12th, 2020 as we will be randomly allocating our 30 cubic feet of space on Monday the 13th after our 1st General Meeting on January the 10th, 2020.  If you indicate interest by registering to this event, you will be included in the lottery allocation for a workshare.    

Joe Robinson (Current steward of East Creek Anagama) will be presenting at our January 10th meeting.  Come check it out if you're interested in learning more.
