An event posted by NewtownHistoricalSociety:
The Newtown Historical Society is hosting an open house on Sunday, May 18.
During the open house Reggie DeLarm, of East Knoll Pottery, will set up her potter’s wheel in our backyard. Reggie will demonstrate the art of making hand-thrown yellow ware pottery using historically correct clays, glazes, designs and applications.
If the weather does not cooperate, Reggie will be inside demonstrating Slip Trailing, which is the application of lines to a clay surface using a fine-point dispenser. The result can be a very creative and beautiful piece.
The public is invited to visit and tour the building at 44 Main St., any
time between noon and 4 p.m.
Admission is free; however, donations are welcomed and appreciated. The society's junior and senior docents will be available to answer questions about the house and its history, as well as provide guided tours by request.
