What we're about

Learn about ceramics and pottery. You don't have to just paint it, you can make it and we can show you how!

I want to re-vive a dying breed of do-it-yourselfer's and artist alike.

This meetup is for anyone with or without experience in ceramics and working with clay, it is even for crafters wanting to make their own beads or for people that just want to get dirty. This meetup is for you!

WANTED: All those who enjoy making something from nothing, just being hands-on and, of course, having good clean dirty fun will love this meetup.
