Warm weather is just around the corner! Let’s get ready by making small planter pots. We will use clay and slip to create and decorate two planters that will be perfect for seedlings, succulents, kitchen herbs, or small houseplants. Ceramic materials will be available for pick up at Stillwater Public Library one week prior to class. After the class is completed, students can bring work to Stillwater Public Library for Artistry to collect and fire the pieces. Artistry will then return fired work to the library, and the pieces will be redistributed to participants.
