If Workshops needs more money, Clay in Ed will roll over some money later in the year.

Secretary spent $50 on stamps and has most of them left.  Will probably need postage again in future years

Clay Fest will donate $500

Annie moves and Maryanne seconds that we accept the budget as read.

Clay Fest proposed budget: 21,719

The Local Clay Website is in the process of being updated.  Look at the section describing your job to see if it needs new info.

Need graphics for Clay Fest bookmarks.  Send photos of your pottery to Frank Gosar frank@offcenter.biz.  Send mass email.

Annual picnic will be at Clay Space again.  Because of the Eugene Celebration, we’ve moved the date to August 19.


Ziggy would like to start meetings with a question.  Possible questions:


     *Styles and copying.  How much do you have to change something to make it your own?

     *Bring problems for feedback.  Why does this glaze do this?  How do you manage dust?

In the early days, the Local Clay meeting lasted no longer than 1.5 hours.  There was a one hour meeting followed by a half hour program.

The March meeting program will be A Rhoda Retrospective:  40 years of pots.

Karen moved that we adjourn. Josh seconded.
