“Those are basically, to get people to the point where they can just come in and slide into the studio nights,” MacCallum said, explaining that on busier studio nights, it can be hard for the pottery club members to get around to help everyone.

The classes were supposed to start last week, but only two people had registered the day before the classes had started.

“I have a feeling that now, it’s kind of a scramble and people are just trying to get settled,” MacCallum rationalized, adding that they’re hoping people start to show some interest a little later in the season.

“We’ve been sort of able to hang on as a group, and every fall it’s sort of another struggle to get people coming in again,” MacCallum said.

But they really would like to see the night grow.

“The more people we have coming in, the more raku firings we can do, the more workshops we can have.”
