Annual Multi-Kiln Opening Celebration at The Village Potters Clay Center

May 4, 2024 @ 11:00 am - 4:00 pm

The Village Potters Clay Center (TVPCC), located in Riverview Station in Asheville’s River Arts District, welcomes one and all to their biggest event of the year. The Multi-Kiln Opening (MKO) Celebration will take place on Saturday, May 4, from 11am – 4pm. The event will take place inside the Teaching Center at TVPCC with Raku demonstrations outside the gallery entrance under a tent. The event is free and open to the public, and The Village Potters gallery will also be open regular hours, from 10am – 5pm.

The Teaching Center will feature ongoing demonstrations by each of the resident potters, including a “throwing big” demonstration by Sarah Wells Rolland and Julia Mann, surface design demonstrations by Lori Theriault and Caroline Renée Woolard, Raku and other alternative firing demonstrations by Judi Harwood, and throwing demonstrations by Katie Meili Messersmith.

Two special exhibits will also be happening during the MKO. A collective exhibit by all resident artists, “Nurtured by Nature” will be showing in the Special Exhibits gallery, and in the Feature Gallery, Caroline Renée Woolard will be showcasing new works and installations as the Spring Featured Artist.

Demonstration times and other event details will be announced closer to the event, and more information may be found at thevillagepotters.com or by following @thevillagepotters on social media.
