Clay Network Bi-Monthly Meeting May 7, 2017

Clay Network Bi-Monthly Meeting
May 7, 2017 @ 2pm
Please join us for our bi-monthly meeting to be held at one of our member's home. Directions will be provided in separate email. 
Our meeting will kick off with the potluck "Meet and Eat" social hour @ 2pm. We'll try to keep it at about a half hour or so. This gives everyone a chance to get settled, grab a bite, and socialize a bit. Please consider bringing a dish and a friend to share!

We are fortunate to have so many very talented members within this organization. Vina Schemer fits this bill. She is an accomplished potter and photographer. Vina will demonstrate how to photograph your work using various tools, including the use of a mobile phone, to enhance the quality of your images. A simple, homemade photo booth will also be available for use. Bring a pot or 2 to test out your new found skills.

The general meeting will follow the hands-on workshop.

We will have a raffle for a clay related item or don't want to miss this!

We'll also have the ever popular "Share-a-Tip" round robin. Bring your favorite tips to share.

We look forward to seeing everyone at the meeting!

Until then.....

Clay Network Meeting, March 12, 2017

We had a great meeting at the Murray Hills Art Center in Jacksonville.  The workshop was a huge success with everyone busy glazing and experimenting with Mike Lalone's crawl glaze, as well as those provided by Sandy Woolley from her studio.  Here are some photos from the workshop and meeting.
