Member News!

We've all been enjoying the freedom of no dues, firing fees, or required monitoring in 2021. However, it is still great to have a monitor available on a regular basis now that we are back to full capacity. So, if you fulfill three (3) monitoring days in 2021, your name will go into a drawing in January of 2022 where you could be one of five (5) people who will receive $20 toward your dues for the year! (Those dues will be $35, which includes firing fees.) So go to the monitoring schedule now to get signed up!

LEARN FROM OTHER MEMBERS! Our club is amazing because we have so many talented members who are willing to share their knowledge with others. Tom Sled is one of our teachers who specializes in hand-built clay projects. The photo is of just some of the objects he has helped many club members create. Everyone who has taken advantage of his classes came away feeling they knew so much more about clay and glazing, no matter how long they had been working with ceramics. Watch for upcoming Sled-led classes!
