Children ages 8 and above have an opportunity to get muddy and learn about pottery in two workshops sponsored by the Macon County Art Association. Scheduled at the Association’s Uptown Gallery at 30 East Main Street in Franklin from 9 a.m. to noon, the workshops are being presented on Saturdays July 14 and July 21.
The focus of the workshop on July14 is to make critters. Ultimately the critters can become ice cream bowls, rattles, paperweights or pencil holders. The critters will be fired in the instructor’s kiln and then be available for the children to paint glaze on them during the second workshop on July 21. After the second firing, the pieces will be water tight, food safe, and reasonably durable.
