Recap: September Makerspace Monday

Chunks of clay were passed around and imaginations were dancing all throughout the air. Clay coils were created, cinnamon roll bowls of shapes and textures twisted, and were designed by Sam herself. Amunique designed a beautiful clay rose, heart shape pinch pottery, and Emoni got started right away by creating a two-tier designer pottery bowl. We were also joined by Luis, who by the way, was up to his knuckles in clay. Luis made a pottery bowl with ocean waves to remind all of us to just “go with the flow,” right Luis?

Next month, we will be joined by guest “Artful Connections” as we mix and create personalized scented essential oil blends. This evening will be a time simply dedicated to you. You will learn how to relinquish feeling fantastic and being calm in crazy stressful times.
