- Open Classes still available, just let us know you are coming:
Monday @ 6:00, Wednesday @ 11:30 and 6:00.
- Second Saturday (as discussed in the last post) at least through April:
Valentine’s Day, St. Patrick’s Day, and Easter themes plus other pieces
- Thursday Night Lives continue on the new schedule:
1st wk = non-fired. 2nd wk =play with clay, 3rd wk = underglazes, 4th wk = glazes
- Technique workshop, Date Night, and Kids Krafts are postponed.
The creativity needed to put together these classes is alive and well. However, the marketing and publicity is a challenge, and we haven’t been able to get a supply of bisque on the shelf.
What we are up to:
- finishing MVCT centerpiece (carousel) & favors (silkscreen transfers)
- fulfilling current Etsy orders
- completing a large start-up order for another shop
- repairing and painting large carousel horses
- getting a supply of bisque on the shelf
- working on the Second Saturday pieces
- cleaning and organizing the studio — there is never enough time for this
- updating master catalog, website catalog, and Etsy stores to include missing items and to make sure prices are current and consistent across all. Losing our slip and paint suppliers is causing an increase in costs and will necessitate an increase in prices.
If you have a group that wants to come and paint at another time just let us know.
If you want to work in the studio, we can always use more help.
We currently have a paid employee for pouring molds
and another for cleaning greenware who gets paid in product.
