ADULT WORKSHOPS have been set up for Sunday afternoons and Wednesday evenings starting January 22nd when we will paint the Star Bright Snowman onto a sled. Workshops are every three weeks, with the Wednesday session a repeat of the Sunday session. Adult workshops are $20 which includes the lesson, all supplies, and snacks.
KIDS KRAFTS WORKSHOPS have been set up for every other Friday evening beginning January 27 when we will be making a snowman mug. Kids Krafts workshops are $10 which includes the lesson, all supplies, and snacks.
BONNIE’S BUNCH (a homeschooler group) has a private workshop for Thursday, January 19 where the Kids will be painting snowmen. They also have a MOM’S DAY OUT on Sunday January 29th where they will be making the Chilly Billy snowman. We hope to be able to make cutouts in the greenware so they can light up,
OPEN CLASSES will resume on Mondays and Thursdays from 7:00 to 10:00 beginning Monday January 23rd. The difference between workshops and classes is that workshops have a specific piece and lesson, whereas open classes allow you to work on whatever you want. Open class fees are $5 per session plus the cost of bisque and any extra firings.
UPKEEP — We are housecleaning, rearranging shelves, packing away seasonal bisque, and painting new samples for the winter items. Just finished some unicorns and a Valentine tree — pictures will be posted some day soon.
REMODELING — In addition to changes in the studio, the Mud Room has been cleared out to make room for the bathroom — the main reason for the shutdown. We probably won’t have everything completed in time for the reopening but hope to at least have the walls up.
POURING for the upcoming workshops will have to start next week. So get your reservations in for the workshops and your orders in for bisque you want for open classes. Remember that we can only pour any given mold once per day; and we need time to pour, clean, and fire each piece.
LOOKING FORWARD TO SEEING EVERYONE BACK, PAINTING,
AND HAVING FUN AGAIN IN JUST A COUPLE OF WEEKS!
Where having Fun is why we come!
