Hello July!

How did you get here so soon and brought HOT weather with you?

We're ready with a whole group of new classes working with wet clay, fused glass, silkscreen designs and a lot of paint. There are also new selections of ready-to-paint bisque if classes don't interest you. Always something new to see and learn so come in and keep cool for a few hours.

As a reminder, we do "Parties For Any Reason" so check your schedule and let us help you plan something fun. Don't wait too long because the dates do fill up fast.

We also carry a full selection of brushes, paints, glazes, and Precious Metal Clay (PMC) for your convenience.

Ready to help you in your selections.....So, See You Soon!!!!
