Make a Home for Mason Bees Workshop

Instructor: Lisa Gauker

Of the 4,000 bee species in North America, Mason Bees are among the easiest to raise, while also being gentle and amazing pollinators. By raising solitary Mason Bees, we can increase their population. It’s a great way to supplement the stressed Honey Bee and sustain our future food supply. Come spend a Saturday morning with Lisa, who is an avid naturalist and beekeeper, to learn all about Mason Bees, while making a shelter for them to take home.

$50 for each adult, $18 for school-aged children.

Register at least one week prior to workshop to ensure enrollment. All materials included. Our workshops are family-friendly; children 12 and under need to be accompanied by an adult.

Open Studio Event: Let’s Move Forward In Hope and Love!

    Clay on Main will host an Open Studio – with materials to create a collage. No art experience is necessary. Let the healing power of the images help you see your path forward.

    Art can play a role in dealing with reeling emotions after last week’s election. Let’s gather together to use the power of art to create our personal path of hope and love for our future. Let the shock and fear pass. It’s an invitation for us to step forward and realize our capacity and responsibility to be the change we want to see in the world.

     Community is a touchstone during troubling times. Come together as citizens of the world for support as we create our vision for our future. 

Everyone welcome. Invite your friends.

Facilitated by Kathy Kolb.

Our Vision:

“…bringing together millions of people from every corner of our country to say with one voice that we believe that the American dream is big enough for everyone — for people of all races and religions, for men and women, for immigrants, for LGBT people, and people with disabilities. For everyone. So now, our responsibility as citizens is to keep doing our part to build that better, stronger, fairer America we seek.” – Hillary Clinton, November 9, 2016

Join together at Clay on Main!

Recent events have made the future a little uncertain, ok- a little scary, really.  But we’re here to help through a rough time.

Join us as we gather to share our experiences and collage our way to healing.  This is a FREE event.

  Clay on Main will host an Open Studio – with materials to create a collage. No art experience is necessary. Let the healing power of the images help you see your path forward.
