I found another hobby this weekend.
Remember back in grade school, when we were blessed to have a designated “arts and crafts” time? AKA the best time of day! Well, I felt a little bit like a kid again Saturday night when my friend, Nicole and I decided to relive the glory days and take a pottery class at ClayWays Pottery Studio in North Austin. Not only was it incredibly fun, we actually learned something and got to get our hands dirty = win, win, win!
We made two different pieces, the first being a tumbler, and the second a bowl. You know, for important things like…candy. Usually you wait until the clay has dried a bit before painting, but since these classes are short you paint them right after they’re molded. Then 4 weeks later they’re ready to be picked up!
If your looking for a great idea for a girls night out, or maybe even Valenitine’s Day, I would highly recommend a night of crafting! Here are some other fun classes to try: Leather stitching, Screen Printing, Sewing, Cooking.
OR, if you’re more of the “that’s nice, but I’d rather just buy it” type, here are a few artisans that make some beautiful (and useful!) pottery for purchase: Jennifer Hill (our instructor), Foxwares, Paulova. Enjoy!
