Bridgit Day

I just wanted to say that the Auckland Ceramics Festival is a fantastic event. It supports local community, it co-ordinates events and functions, its very enjoyable, its educational and its very varied. It's a great opportunity which I hope grows from strength to strength. As well as supporting and promoting the Arts it also supports and promotes Auckland's Heritage. Huge thank you and congratulations to the organisers and sponsors and all those involved especially those who opened their home and studios and those who gave their time to talk to us at the many events and functions.
