Tulliallan Demonstrator - Stuart Whatley
I am very happy to have been invited to demonstrate at the annual SPA meeting in 2019. The SPA has historically been very important to me, both to my pottery education and to the connections that build between potters.
I've played with clay since I was a lad, brought up on the wee island of Pabay, off the south east of Skye. This rough boulder clay led, with my Dad, to an embryonic pottery and on leaving the island began this potter's life at Edinbane in 1972. I have made a full time living ever since, making functional stoneware, mostly wood fired or salt glazed. A love of walking and sailing and the wildlife of this wonderful landscape invades all the work.
During the demonstration I would like to show the processes in making our raw glazed pots, throwing - both round and not so round, joining, turning and handling, decorating in the clay and later glazing.
We are delighted to announce our three exciting demontrators for the annual Spring Weekend at Tulliallan Police College, Kincardine, Fife KK10 4BE from 9th to 11th March 2019.
They are Peter Hayes, Stuart Whatley and Zahed Taj-Eddin!
We hope you can join us for this action packed weekend. Please note there is an EARLY BIRD DISCOUNT for booking early too - pay in full by the end of November 2018!
Getting to Tulliallan
There are so many different ways to approach Tulliallan that the best thing is to give you a map. Please note that parking for the SPA weekend is at No 3, ie on the Parade Square and at no other place mentioned. Reception is also at the Parade Square, and not at No 4.
