The 13th Annual Fired Works Regional Ceramics Exhibition and Sale will be held April 14-22, 2018 Macon's beautiful Central City Park. The 2018 exhibit will feature 65 potters from Georgia and the Southeast. Maybe you have taken a pottery class or two, and want to try your technique on the pottery wheel? If so, you will enjoy a Spin the Wheel Workshop at Fired Works. Professional ceramic artists will teach you how to throw your own piece of clay on the pottery wheel. This is a great way to learn new techniques and create new experiences. A group of 6 will work with our professional ceramic artists on creating a beautiful wheel thrown piece of pottery. Please wear attire that can get dirty. Tickets are $50 and includes materials and finished piece. There are two class time slots, 6pm and 7:30pm. Space is limited, so sign up early!   The nine-day exhibit and sale includes special events such as Clay Workshops for Children, Corks and Clay workshops for Adults, artist talks and more. The mission of Fired Works is help Southeastern ceramic artists and potters show and sell their work. Fired Works promotes the rich history of pottery in Georgia and its connection to the history of the Ocmulgee River Region. People have made pottery along the banks of the Ocmulgee River for thousands of years and local potters continue this tradition today. In fact, the oldest piece of stamped pottery ever found in North America was found at the Ocmulgee National Monument in Macon. Fired Works is a program of Macon Arts Alliance and is supported by numerous sponsors and community partners.
