Northern Moore Resource Center Fundraiser Pottery Crawl

2012 Behind the Scenes Pottery Crawl

On Saturday, May 12th from 10 am to 5pm, whether you are a pottery newbie or a seasoned collector, you’ll enjoy the Behind the Scenes Pottery Crawl and help out deserving children and families.

 Enjoy delicious appetizers and wine at potteries

Watch pottery demonstrations

Spend a fun-filled Saturday meeting the artists, touring their studios, and admiring their creations.  Come check out 14 of our favorite potteries in a self-guided car tour.  Each pottery will have a unique culinary delight with wine pairing (beef tenderloin on rounds of French bread, shrimp served with remoulade and red sauces, open-faced pork sliders, an elegant almond torte, to name a few), and demonstrations focusing on different aspects of the craft – from shaping at the wheel, to glazing, to firing techniques.  Or you can roll up your sleeves and make a pot yourself. 

Last year's participants were inspired by the beautiful countryside, the world class artistic talent of Seagrove, and the unique way the featured artists live and work.  You'll never want to give a store-bought gift again.  And on Mother’s day weekend, why give Mom another tired gift?  Spend an unforgettable day with her instead! 

Tickets only $45
