Potters Council Question of the Week
Our Question of the Week is about having a fun, creative way on our Potters Council forum to laugh, share, and interact. We will be posting a “Question of the Week” every week for you to answer, give an opinion, or maybe laugh a little. The questions will range from the serious to playful. The Question of the Week is a way for Potters Council members to connect online and discuss new topics each week. A way for the clay community to interact with one another.
