Whether you are a new student or a seasoned patron, a great way to support the art center is volunteering for Artisan Village. The village is a large gathering of artists vending their work, sponsored by the Willamette Art Center, and it is our primary fundraiser of the year supporting the facility. The center needs volunteers to work in the following areas:
- Our Raku booth where patrons buy a pot, glaze it and we fire it, ready for pick-up in a couple of hours. You might choose to be a cashier, glaze helper, or, if you’ve had some experience, assist with the Raku firing.
- The studio and Oaks Gallery will also be open this year and we need a person to demo working with clay, a greeter and a cashier each shift. Please sign up today in the studio. Workers receive free admission to the fair, a T-shirt, satisfaction knowing you’ve supported the WAC, and joy watching kids of all ages create shiny pots!
The sign-up sheets for both areas are posted on the board near the monitors desk.
