GALS' NIGHT OUT AT THE OAC

Calling all gals and friends who would like a night out of fun and creativity. During this evening, you will be shown the variety of ways that clay can be manipulated into useful, decorative and “gifty” creations. You may try throwing pots on the wheel, hand-building, and or utilizing clay slabs to make your unique creation come to life. Delve into your imagination, experiment and have fun. No experience necessary! All supplies included. The pieces that you have created will be bisque fired, glazed with the color of your choosing and fired a second time. Your pieces are then microwave, oven and dishwasher safe. You may pick up your treasures at the Arts Center 3 weeks after class. Dress casually in clothes that can get messy.
