Ojai Show and Sale - June 8th & 9th

The musicians have been hired for both Saturday and Sunday afternoon, Diane Hedding is the Coordinator for the show and Stacy Rowe has volunteered to be the Cashier with support from Brenda Burgess and Randy Au.

We are setting up two booths for demonstrations: one for throwing and one for handbuilding - if you are not selling come to the sale and play with clay.

All of the artists that sold in 2018 have been assigned booths based on the new layout on the grass area and the current map of the site is enclosed in this newsletter.

Enclosed is the registration form for the sale and timing: Booth Set Up: Friday June 7th, 3:00 pm to 5:00 pm or Saturday June 8th, 8:00 am to 9:30 am. Note: all artists must be ready to greet the public & sell no later than 10:00 am on both days.
