Saturday February 20th was an eventful day with lots of sunshine and mild temperatures. Many kids stopped by my demo table and decorated clay tiles with snowflakes. Once they are dried & fired...they will be on display in the gallery for all to see. I'll post a photo when its complete.
Just finished making these lidded beauties. In this picture they are just drying and in about a week when they are dry....I will bisque fire them. Hope to have these finished for the Muskoka Arts and Crafts Spring Members Show.
I'm so proud of Mrs. Springs grade 1 class. They were amazing with all things clay. The first week I was in their classroom, we decorated these tiles of their favourite winter olympic sport. This experience gave me some great insight into the kids clay classes being offered at Chetolah Fresh Air Studio to come this upcoming summer.
I enjoyed a great long weekend with the family. One of the many lovely things with having mom come visit is all the tastey food & let overs. Monday eve and finished rearranging a friends living room furniture (how satisfying!!!) Pulled out roast squash/sweet potato soup, salad, crusty bread & cream cheese & lobster spread. yum.
