Would you please add a couple things to the agenda for discussion.

Teachers removing things from the teachers cabinet for personal usage should not be happening. If we need tools/glaze we need to put it on the shopping lists.

Teachers need to let leadership know when we are running low on clay for classes.

In progress shelves - huge ware boards holding small pieces needs to reduce profiles where we can so everyone can fit, items must be labeled with date, pieces on bats for no more than 2 weeks.


We also need to add a request for more volunteers for the slow down symposium on June 12th. I’ll be there and would love some company. We can do throwing demonstrations or hand building.

What is this slow down that you speak of :eyes:

This was posted as volunteer opportunity about a week ago.


All, apologies ahead of time but due to work circumstances, I will not be able to lead the meeting this evening. Co-chair, @coffeebean, who would normally ascend to facilitate the meeting in my absences, is also unavailable.
Therefore, I have made an executive decision to postpone our 6.1.21 meeting to next Tuesday 6.8.21. April will update the calendar event. If you have a pressing matter that requires immediate attention, please reach out directly to me.


I have submitted the meeting for June 8th :slight_smile: Hope to see you all there!!


Yay! I couldn’t attend, now I can!
(attend resched date)

FYI- tomorrow’s meeting will be virtual. I’m getting Part 2 of the covid vaccine and am unsure how I will feel.


Are there any minutes from the meeting? And is there a special firing on the 25th?

Hi, looked on the wiki for the agenda/meeting minutes, but didn’t see anything posted since 3/3/21.
Sorry I was not able to attend.

Are we sure that there was a meeting? Or, rather, that anybody but @Synth83 was at the meeting? I couldn’t attend, virtually or otherwise. You weren’t there, April wasn’t there…

I was there, Margaret, and Utopia. There was a short meeting.

@Synth83 has been busy with work and home things but I’m sure she’ll have a few notes. I’ll reach out to her.

There was a meeting. We had 4 in attendance. I will try to get the notes up this week.

I just wanted to know if the special firing was a go :relaxed:

April- can you please post the link to where you’ve been posting the minutes?

I don’t have anything in my notes for special firing but that doesn’t mean we can’t plan it.


Excellent example!
I hope you don’t mind, I took the liberty of adding in the Category links, which makes finding these minutes easier after-the-fact by putting these links @ the bottom of the page:

It also makes them participants in the main meeting list:

The links I used (though they need modified slightly to match year, etc.) can be found in the “Blank” meeting by “view/edit source” and copy Erick’s excellent source:

Thank you for getting them out there on the wiki! Really appreciate that extra work!
