With all the news and social media discussion, I suppose we should also address the pandemic that has been declared over the coronavirus. Some share statistics of other viruses that have come and gone, or other practices that cause death at a much higher rate than this virus, and ask what the panic is all about.
For our family, we have decided to keep Jeremy home from the workshop since the government has declared the schools closed. I see that now the bars and restaurants are closed as well. Hopefully, all this caution and precautions being taken will slow down the spread of this virus. We are doing without milk and toilet paper as some folks found it necessary to deplete the grocery shelves of these items, rather than share them with the rest of us.
However, it is still business as usual. We are here and no one is sick (other than the usual sinus drainage, arthritis, and PPS pain that lives here). So IF you want to come and paint ceramics you are welcome. Or IF you want to come and pick up pieces to paint at home, you are also welcome to do that. We do have some things on the shelf that the kids might like to do.
And we also have some “Easter buckets” if you want to make up one for your kids or grandkids. We premade these last year and have some supplies left. Included were two pieces of bisque, paint & brush, candy, and coupons for free lesson for a child and one for an adult. We sold them for $15 or two for $25.
I also want to remind you of the upcoming Easter workshop which had been moved to Sunday, March 29th. We have allowed extended time as the workshop includes an Easter basket and chocolate bunny as well as a new technique called mudding. This is a special thickened product which is applied with a small bottle and cake decorating tip, then drawn through with a liner brush to make the design. The technique can be done on glass, on unfired ceramic glaze (then fired), or on non-fired products. We will be painting our Easter eggs with acrylic paints in spring colors before applying the mud. Here is the poster.
