Summer is here and it is time to start thinking about flower pots, pumpkins, yard art, snowmen, Welcome signs, Nativities and Santa Claus!!! Sounds crazy but it's true, now is the time to start thinking about those fall and winter projects especially if you are making gifts or multiples of the same piece, like dinnerware or angels!
Tuesday March 3rd we began an exciting series of "handbuilding" classes. The first in this series is a "puzzled" plate. This class will be in done in 2 consecutive weeks. The first will be Tuesday evenings March 3rd and 10. We will repeat these same classes Saturday March 7th and 14th. The cost of these classes are $40 and is all inclusive.

This class teaches you to work with the clay along with textures and stamps.
#2 in the clay series series was an abstract wall hanging using red clay and teaching rolling, leveling, making your own "slurry," and scoring and adding depth to a flat piece of clay by scoring and adding handmade add-ons. This class also teaches the use of an extruder. This class will be offered Tuesday evening April 7 and Saturday April 11.
