This month’s Clay Club will meet here at the wonderful Penland clay studio from 6 to 8 PM, Wednesday, February 8, for our annual mug-making extravaganza. Pizza, soda, and stoneware are provided. Please bring anything else you’d like to share. However, it’s a BYOCT event. That means bring your own clay tools as there might not be enough shared tools to go around. We have buckets and towels. Please remember that we can’t drink alcohol in the studio while we are working, but afterwards we can adjourn to the porch for a beverage.
Each year, Penland gives away 500+ handmade mugs to the many patrons and volunteers for the school’s Annual Benefit Auction. The cups are available at the Saturday morning Breakfast at the Barns event. Following Penland’s spirit of community, the mug-making is open to any who would like to participate. So, come have fun with us! You can throw or handbuild. There will be some leatherhard cylinders already made for those who would like to attach handles or decorate. Or just eat pizza and entertain us with stories from your exotic life.
If you have any questions, please contact me, Susan Feagin at 828-765-2359, ext. 29 or e-mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. See you soon!
