The Party Van

We are starting to do remote classes again. We recently went to a preschool class [who did cupcake banks and boxes], a primary class [who did donut banks and boxes], and a nursing home [who silkscreened flowers onto plates].

We have scheduled a workshop (disabled adults) doing crystal glazes on leaf dishes.

And we have tentative reservations for the places we went to recently doing leaf dishes with preschool, silkscreen leaf designs on a plate for primary, and shaving cream pumpkins for the nursing home. Also a group of teachers doing a Fashenhues project, either the harvest jar (pumpkins with squirrels) or the large scarecrow.

DO YOU KNOW a group that would like to have us come out? If so, please have them send a message or call us at 330-219-8001 We need enough time to pour, clean, and fire the bisque so schedule early.
