|NEWTON POTTERY CLUB: Members work
Newton Pottery Club was started by Steve and Barbara Leaning in their studio at 'the end room' and now runs pottery classes on Thursday, Friday and Saturday mornings 10-12.30 and afternoons 2-4.30 throughout the year.
This is just a tiny sample of the varied work produced by its very talented members.
The Club is open for anyone to come along, (although it is restricted to six places per session) to try their hand at working with clay, beginners are more than welcome.

FIRE & SMOKE
Over 27 of the Pottery Club came along on Sunday 20th June 2010 to experience the smoke and magic of Raku firing.
Julie Montgomery and Tim Betts brought along their oil drum kiln to fire everyone's pots that they had made for the occasion.
The sun shone and the smoke billowed as people excitedly scrubbed the black from their fired pots to reveal the amazingly different colours created.
SMOKE & FIRE 2
The 8th and 15th May 2011 saw Steve testing out his new Raku firing dustbin with members of the pottery club.
Although the sun didn't shine there was plenty of smoke as the white hot pots hit the sawdust.
This event has proved so popular that it has now become an annual event.
ON SHOW 2011
A selection of all the members work is on show from 24th August to 21st Sept 2011 at The Willoughby Memorial Trust Gallery, Corby Glen, Lincolnshire NG33 4NL
