Open studio is teaming up with Harry Mestyanek Pottery at the Riverfront Pavillion Winter Market. Unique, hand-crafted holiday gifts and gift certificates are available. A great way to shop local and enjoy downtown Spokane in festive holiday mode. Wednesdays from 3-7 through January 27, 2021. (No market 12/23/20)
We had a special visit from a home school family looking for fun enrichment activities. Kids and parents were excited about what they saw in the studio so we said, "What the heck, let's make something!" They'll be returning to glaze their work after we get it into the next bisque firing. Can't wait!
This young man is measuring and cutting a piece of clay after using the slab roller to get it ready.
This little lady is smiling under that mask. She is happy with her heart-shaped creation after using a hand roller to add textured impressions to the clay.
The littlest brother decided to make the same shape as big brother, but he did his own measuring and cutting with a little guidance from Harry.
We thoroughly enjoyed working with these little people and especially appreciated the input of a pair of home schooling parents who identified a need for creative activities both in the studio and at home. Stay tuned for our Take-and-Make Kids' Kits, coming in 2021.
