21st annual Texas Clay Festival in Gruene. http://www.texasclayfestival.com/home.html
Featuring the work of over 60 Texas potters and clay artists, the festival offers the opportunity to view and purchase a wide variety of pottery, from traditional to sculptural by the top clay artist in the state. Take this unique opportunity to watch and learn as demonstrations are held in four tents throughout both days. From forming on the potters wheel to hand-building to raku firing, there is something for everyone.
Admission is free to all festival events
We will meet in front of Gruene Hall at 10:00. Parking is free on Gruene Road, as well as in the big parking lot across from Gruene Hall to the right. We will wander the festival grounds for an hour or so, then get lunch somewhere in town.
There are a few restaurants in Gruene and they are all delicious. We may split into groups heading to any or all of them depending on what cuisine folks want.
