Fishing Fridays

Every Friday evening at 7:00 EDT we do a Facebook Live on Carol’s Carousel Classes called Fishing Fridays. During these online classes we are making a variety of fishing themed pieces to hand out at the…

MVCT Fishing with Friends Retreat being held June 11-13.

The Retreat

There are three options for participating in the retreat: come to the studio ($90) OR watch via Zoom with a to-go kit of supplies ($115) OR watch via Zoom but use your own supplies ($20). There is also an option to purchase a Fashenhues kit for the Saturday morning Koi class ($17.30 which is a 30% discount). Send me a message if you would like a registration form. A $30 deposit is required with the balance due June 1st. If you cannot make it to the studio for the entire retreat, you can do one day only for $30. Please note that these are costs only for materials and paints, we are not permitted to make money on a retreat. However, presenters will get IADCCT credit for presenting. The Zoom video will be available after the retreat is over in case you miss a day.

The Projects

We are making a total of 8 projects. Friday afternoon & evening is four Make & Takes (quick projects) including silkscreens, sponge-its, bubbles, and cobblestone. Saturday morning is the Fashenhues Koi Fish with Sheryl and Saturday afternoon is a clay puzzling Ugly Fish with Jim. Sunday finishes up the retreat with a Duncan U brushstroke class called “Gone Fishing” with Larry Knight and a stained-glass look fishing scene with French dimensions and glazes by Carol. Pictures of the projects are on the registration form.

The Prizes

There will be a drawing each day: Friday for the Fishing with Friends tree (with a fishing scene) painted in stains. Saturday the drawing will be for the Fishing Kids on a bench done in Fashenhues. And finally, Sunday’s drawing will be for the Fishing Boy with Dog done in underglazes.

Throughout each day there will be drawings for small items for door prizes. These include several fish dishes & shell dishes, windchimes, a planter, a cotton box, a shell box, fish family wall plaques, undersea tile sets, and coffee mugs. Also, each partipitant will get a shell party favor (most are painted with True Matte glazes) filled with candy.


Supply lists will be sent to anyone choosing to use their own bisque and paints. We can send these out as soon as we receive your registration.

Project Tech Sheets for all eight projects will be given to studio participants as we paint each project and will be sent with the to-go kits of supplies.

Prize Tech Sheets will be available for anyone participating in the Retreat. They are also available for purchase at $5.00 each by sending a message to Carol. These are for all of the projects done on the Fishing Friday Facebook Live videos. None of the items are up for sale since they are being made for the retreat. However, bisque & paints (with tech sheet), or finished pieces can be ordered for most items.

That’s it for tonight! Hope to see you at the Retreat!
