Paint a Pint with Polly Noll

About three years ago, I enrolled two of my kids in a Beginning Wheel class at Crossing's, so I could tag along.

Neither of those kids really enjoy throwing on the wheel, but I have been hooked ever since.  I may not have learned much in that first class, but it was a slippery slope to another beginning class, a surface treatment class and an intermediate throwing class.

Somewhere in between the classes at Crossing's, I purchased a small portable pottery wheel to use at home, so my hands could spend as much time as possible in the clay - if only moments between kids, and house, and work...

Pottery is a medium where you can try anything with nothing to lose!

I can see something on a video or in a catalogue and try it, or change it, or scrap the whole thing- and start with something new.

I have been throwing on the wheel for three years. With a great baseline from the Beginning and Intermediate Classes - it's what I need to keep experimenting and learning. Not to mention, how this process allows me to escape and center a bit of my creative soul.

Here's a class like the 'paint your own pottery', but with a hand-thrown, locally made piece of pottery from our very own clay studio!
And even better than that, we'll let you bring your own beer. (Or any beverage :-)
We'll supply the pint, the paint and the place! When you're done we will send it though the last fire and the mug is yours forever.
Grab your friends, some snacks and a beer and spend creative time in our clay studio.

Saturday September 19, 6:30-9:30pm
Price is $28, with $10 (includes a hand-thrown mug!) supplies and $3 per piece for firing.
