Guild History: The idea for a guild grew from just some hazy dreaming in a shed between a few old Range ‘woodies’ who felt the need for a club to serve the whole of the Blackall Range. Development on the range and adjacent areas due to the recreational and retirement plans of many people was increasing, and the search for fulfilling hobbies, perhaps with some income generation, and the chance for constructive community involvement was growing.

The decision was made to have a go and the club had its first meeting in St.Mary’s Hall on the Village Green at Montville on 4th March 1996. The Blackall Range Woodcrafters Guild Inc was formally incorporated on 30th April 1996.

In 2002, after six years in a shed on Western Avenue, and following the receipt of a Jupiter’s Casino Grant, we moved to a more permanent base at the Montville Sports Ground, about 3km south of Montville.

With good local support, the club has rapidly grown into a thriving purposeful group over 150 strong, including a good number of ladies. It now has a complete range of equipment, including a solar drying kiln and a large stock and range of timber supplies. In our new premises we envisage young people, retirees, people in care centres and similar being able to take advantage of the benefits which a permanent and purpose-built building can provide.

Fried Mudd Pottery Workshop

Fried-Mudd-Pottery-logo

More than just Pottery Workshops…

In many ways, Kathy from Fried Mudd Pottery Workshops offers people a safe place to express themselves, and permission to let the child within play and have a bit of fun.

Participant’s leave feeling thrilled, excited and exhilarated at their creations – made with their own hands and with creativity sparked from within themselves. They often go away able to tell a new story about themselves; “Actually, I can be creative.”

Cathy’s style and approach to familiarising people with clay and what it can do, simplifying the process and then letting them feel their way, produces the magical transitions that make these workshops such special events.
