Things to Do – October

“He is outside of everything, and alien everywhere. He is an aesthetic solitary. His beautiful, light imagination
is the wing that on the autumn evening just brushes the dusky window.” ~Henry James

Oct. 4th Play with Clay returns – an open clay studio experience designed for families, friends and couples! Over two Sundays, you make an object out of clay and paint it with our glazes. It gets fired in the kiln and then you pick up your colourful and unique object. You’ll be amazed at what you can create! Two sessions to choose from each Sunday: 1:00-2:15 and 2:30-4:00 on a first-come, first-served basis. Only $10! theclayandglass
