Web site rebuild after EU demolition

Hi, You will see that the web site is a bit patchy as I have removed images of people and work from the members work section for anyone who did not reply to our request to include personal data. Please let me know if anything on the site remains which you feel is any way infringes your individual privacy rights. Having got to this point it would be nice to start to rebuild the web site. Images of people need permission from the people shown before they can be included – a pain I know, but this is my current understanding. Images of children need their parents permission – this is really sad as we wish to encourage children to experience the fun of making things with clay – even if it is only a mess. All members, and I mean all, are encouraged to send in images of work, write reviews, advertise events, classes, equipment etc etc – anything you think will either promote your ceramic activities or be of general interest to the membership. Remember this web site is the first port of call for many galleries looking for exhibitors and for galleries that select from NWP members for exhibitions. If you do not want to be overlooked make sure you are on this site and that you keep your images of work up to date. Regards Richard.

EU Law, Blog, Newsletter, Personal Data

Dear All, You will notice a number of changes to this Web Site. I have been removing any images of people who I have not had express permission to show. I have also removed the Blog Subscription and have not started a subscription Newsletter until NWP have drawn up a new Privacy Policy. Members will shortly get an Email asking them to confirm that they will permit NWP to continue to hold some basic personal information, ie.. the information requested on the membership form. For those of you who show work on the members pages and give personal details such as conatct information, Web-links etc, we will also need confirmation the you are happy with the information on the site. This has to be done by the 25th May 2018 (this Friday) or I will have to remove your details. Regards Richard.

EU regulation

Dear Subscriber, I have temporarilly removed the Blog Subscription system until I fully understand the conditions of the new EU reguations. Please feel free to Unscubscribe.


Hi, This may be a bit confusing and demonstrates my lack of ability in running a web site. I have just found an application which allows me to set up a newsletter. If I can figure out how to use it I will switch to this instead of using the Blog. Don’t hold your breath as I have only a little time to spend on this at the moment – the troups are demanding coffee.

Llyn Arts Festival

Llyn Arts Festival ( )

May 25 – June 3   Annie Horsley  is opening her studio during the week and is doing workshops on Monday and Wednesday . Her Studio is at Tyn Y Parc Llangwnnadl, LL538NY, email pandahorsley@talktalk , net phone 01758770492 Lots to see and do!

Several North Wales potters are also selling work in Llanbederog Village Hall as part of the Festival on 28th May. In addition Plas Glyn Y Weddw is also always worth a visit and has work by several NWP members in its shop – they also do nice cakes and other food in the cafe.

Blog comments and events update

Hi, Following a discussion with one of our members I checked the Blog settings again. To prevent your in-box being swamped I have set up comments so they have to be moderated by me. This will prevent any inappropriate comments being posted – so please sign up to the blog posts to keep yourself informed of our activities. I have also updated information about Pea’s workshops on 20th and 30th May.

Figure making classes

Pea Restall is running a couple of classes in figure making as part of a Llandudno/ Ross-on-Sea Festival, Details have been added to the calendar and Current events page.

Calendar, Craft Fairs etc

Hi, I have updated the Calendar and added a note on Craft Fairs under Events. These blog post are availble by Email (just sign up on this site) and get automatically sent to Facebook. This seems a good way of keeping members informed but will only work if I am supplied with information. So if you wish to publicise an event please send me the details. I would also like to publish tips, reviews, items for sale etc etc – send them all in.

Email alerts

As a simple way of distributing information I will use this blog page more. The blog automatically appears on Facebook. You can also get these blog posts sent to you by Email by simply adding your address on the page that comes up if you use the Email Alert tab. If you get fed up of me posting too much stuff simply unsubscribe. Regards Richard.
