DETAILS

- Optional: For additional fun, feel free to bring pre-baked clay bases in simple shapes you'd like to cover with veneers (pendants, bracelets, decor items). Also a Medium to attach your raw clay to baked clay (your preference: what you have on hand: liquid clay, genesis heat set medium, etc)

- After the demo, try the tools yourself in class (to be shared and returned before end of class). Handouts will include website info for purchasing items.


SPRING RETREAT!
$25.00, same as last year! And the Goodie Bags are being filled, as you read this! The List has already been started. Kathy Ham has agreed to honcho our Retreat again (YAY Kathy!!!) We, hopefully, will all pitch in and make this another memorable 2 days of claying, sharing, (and food, of course)!!! Sleep over too: dig out those air mattresses, pillows, and cots!! There are lots of cool spots, to set up your own sleeping corner, in our new clay place!
