Come clay with us after the meeting! 


Sgraffito is a really fun carving technique. 


Karen will prep a multitude of clay pieces for you to choose from. 


She'll present a brief demonstration and then give you as much or as little help as you would like. 


No clay experience needed, it's not even as messy as most clay dates. :-)
