Clay on Main Fosters an Environment to Grow and Learn

As many of you studio-goers know, Clay on Main sees many visitors through it’s doors.  We have been fortunate enough to foster the type of learning environment that allows children and adults alike to create in clay, while exploring ideas and developing a comfort level with the medium.  To say that working with clay is therapeutic is an understatement!  Just like a warm home-cooked meal, clay has the ability to draw us together and open up our senses.

We’ve always taken pride in the good that a little hunk of clay in warm hands can do.  Last Spring, the studio hosted The Sisterhood of Reading, a lovely collective of ladies who are creating a positive environment for African-American women in the area through mentorship. They wasted no time in creating beautiful clay mugs, as well as painting handmade bowls for the ‘Souper Bowl’, Opportunity House’s annual fundraiser.  They were happy to share some of their photos with us on our Facebook page recently, and we’re happy to share them with you!

We always love new faces, but our hope is that new faces become long recognized faces as we see them come back again and again!

 

Check out a little of what the ladies from The Sisterhood of Reading created at Clay on Main:
