CLAY CREATIONS STUDIO

with Kate Peck
1st & 3rd Saturday every month
Beginning September 2019
10:30 AM – 12:00 PM

We asked and you answered! Beginning this September our Youth Clay Creations will be held the first and third Saturdays of each month, unless it lands on a holiday. Drop in between 10:30am and Noon to explore clay building open studio style. That means we’ll be there each time helping with building ideas such as pinch pots, slab constructed boxes, free-form clay sculptures and so much more! Students will then have the flexibility of creating on their own timeline and glaze as pieces have been bisque fired. We do get messy so make sure to send your student in suitable clothes. We still appreciate registering early so we can always make sure we have enough clay.
