March’s meet up at The Clay Studio in Olde City was fabulous. First, we learned how to alter ceramics using decals and porcelain paint, then, we took a tour of the gallery and the studios. Many thanks to our member, Meg Perine for setting up the event, and to the Clay Studio’s curator, Garth Johnson, for leading the demo and the tour! And to the artists of The Clay Studio, for being so welcoming as we walked around and toured the space.
We took a ton of photos. So many, in fact, that we will be posting them in two separate posts.

Well, it’s been one doozy of a Winter. What’s this, snowstorm #16? When will it be Spring??? Though it’s tempting to hunker down and hibernate, it’s important to stay active and social during these long winter months. So that’s just what we’ve been doing. Here are some pics from last month’s Handmade Philly meet up held at Cerulean Arts on Ridge Avenue, right near the Divine Lorraine. Next meet up is this Sunday, so dust off those cobwebs and come on out! It’s time to mix and mingle!!
January’s meeting will be held in South Philadelphia at Jed Williams Gallery.
Date: January 19th
Time: 3-5 pm
Address: Jed Williams Gallery, 615 Bainbridge Street. Phila.
Bring a snack to share! BYOB (or Wine).
Bring something you’ve made, or bring a Work In Progress.
Looking forward to catching up with you, and for those of you I have not met, I’m looking forward to meeting you!
*Note (call for volunteer): We are looking for someone to take photos at the meeting, and to post about the meeting afterwards, on our blog.
Also, if anyone is interested in leading a skill share, please let me know and I can try to bring supplies!
Please be sure to RSVP if you have a FB account. https://www.facebook.com/events/786491068044878/?ref_newsfeed_story_type=regular

Eris Temple was kind enough to host our December meet up! The weather was quite frightful, but it was ever so delightful inside! Their Winter Boutique is set up through January 4.
Well, due to last weekend’s unexpected snowstorm, we had to reschedule this meet up. The good folks at Eris have agreed to give it another try this coming Sunday, the 15th at 5pm. Hope to see you there!
Note: Looks like another storm is headed our way. Please be sure to check here before heading out to our event, in case we have to cancel.
