We have had a busy summer so far and it's just begun!
This week, clay camp is going on in the mornings from 9:00-11:00 and the afternoons from 1:30-3:30, they're doing amazing things with Ness Kent, she's really got a gift for teaching. If you come by the studio during her camp times, peek in on what they're doing and what they've done! She will be back soon for adults too- sgraffito anyone?
