Kudardup Park is situated between Augusta and Margaret River, just off the Bussell Hwy on the turn off to Molloy Island

What a marvelous bunch of potters you all are!
Thank you so much for inviting the CAAWA group into your studios and sharing your experiences and answering their questions.
We had no trouble with the local bus driver who also gave a tour of his studio and sculpture garden. Thank you Ian.

Thank you to Jacquie Happ for serving morning tea to everyone on Sunday morning, and a special thank you to Alison who provided lunch at her riverside studio.
The Bussleton Potters Group, a buzz with activities, greeted CAAWA with more delicious cake and coffee.
Bursting at the seams, everyone headed for home very content after having a great weekend.

Over the years, wandering in and out of studios, I have gained an appreciation of the commitment and energy needed to sustain an open studio and gallery. My open studio in Fremantle, many years ago, lasted only 2 years before I collapsed in a heap with exhaustion.
So I take my hat off to you all for your dedication, passion and perseverance.

Many thanks again,

Cher Shackleton
