'Ceramica' is an exhibition of pots made by the group who meet on Friday morning at ClayWorks, 111B Eastbank Street, Southport. This is the pottery studio set up by SCA, about 18 months ago, to provide working space for ceramicists of any ability. This group was formed early on and has stayed together ever since.
