Pottery, Pottery, Pottery!!! And More...




Years ago I visited Joe Bennion's Pottery studio in Spring City, Utah and got to look around and he wasn't even there at the time. Little did I know that eventually I would have my own studio and shop that I could leave open all the time.

So this is to announce that my studio at 967 E. 11000 S. Avon, Utah is now open pretty much all the time. except when I'm set up somewhere else. This happens mostly in the summer. For those who wish to make the trek, the studio will be a help yourself type of deal if I'm not there. Since I live on the property, I think I can do this without disasters. At the studio there will always be some extra good deals going on. Right now everything in the studio is 15% off, plus I'll eat the tax, which means for you--more than 20% off. Think Christmas, wedding gifts, and so forth. I've started making great tumblers. These hold a good 16 oz. Come see what else there is.

The Paradise Art Sale will be Saturday November 22nd at the town hall. More on this later.(Studio will be closed this day only this winter.)

LESSONS: And now that I'm in a new place I'm offering lessons and classes. Any group and almost anytime. I'd love to do some group classes during the daytime hours, so if you have a home school group, or a stay at home mom group, or a mom and tot group, I'd love to start a class tailored to your needs. Scouts, church group, date night, family home evening--you'll be surprised with how much fun you can have with clay. The classes will focus on hand-building and can include projects, such as coil vases, slab bowls, and animal sculptures. The charge for a group lesson of up to six people is $30. for an hour and half session, add 3.00 extra for each person beyond 6. I can accomodate up to 12. Throwing on the wheel lessons are individualized and 20.00 per session. I'm starting a children's hand-building class Thursday Nov. 6th at 4:15. $30.00 for 5 weeks. 90 minute class. Email or call for more information. 435-760-2592 (If I get at least five students) AGE: 5 ON UP (CALL IF YOU NEED AN EXCEPTION) Also if you have little ones to take care of we can work out arrangements for this at my house.

UPDATE: I've added a MONDAY MORNING CLASS Nov. 10th THAT IS FILLING UP QUICKLY. THE CLASS GOES FROM 9:30 TO 11:00 AM. THE CLASSES WILL HAVE THREE HAND-BUILDING DAYS, ONE WHEEL-THROWING, AND ONE GLAZING DAY.

MAP TO STUDIO IS ON MY WEBSITE. FROM MID-LOGAN IT TAKES ABOUT 25 MINUTES TO GET THERE.

Carole- This is Marion's wife, Sue. Would you mind if I posted this info. to the homeschool Yahoo group? That might help get the word out and get some customers your way! If it's ok, would you want me to link to this blog, or copy and paste the info?

Thanks!

Carole - My name is Heather Hansen. I talked to you about enrolling my daughter, Rachel, in your Thursday @ 4:15 p.m. pottery class. Please call me when you get back from Provo. I wrote down that it was 5 weeks skipping Thanksgiving and it was $30 per child. Thank you!
