March’s meeting will be held at the Clay Studio.Handmade Philly events are open to the public and are free of charge.
Date: March 9th
Time: 3-5 pm
Address: The Clay Studio, 139 N Second St., Phila.This meeting is being hosted by Handmade Philly member Meg Perine. Thanks Meg!

Details: “The good people of the Clay Studio have agreed to us having the next meet up in the gallery space.

The Curator, Garth Johnson, wants to be involved so he is giving us a tour of the whole building which includes the Resident artist floor, the School, and the Associate floor (where I share in the communal rented studio space). You can look at the Clay Studio website to see which exhibitions will be in the gallery by then.

Decal activity planned! Bring an item of smooth, shiny, white ceramic (or choose from pre-bought thrift store items from Ruth and me) and decorate it with decals! Decals will be in the form of colored paper so you can cut out a design and put it on the item to be fired, and it will be a permanent surface decoration. If anyone has stencils or things, feel free to bring them too!

Here's a look at the items Meg and I scrounged up at the thrift store.

Here’s a look at the items Meg and I scrounged up at the thrift store.

The Clay Studio is very near the 2nd st MFL stop in Old City. The street parking is so-so in that area, but there are several lots around. There are 3 doors, which can be confusing for first timers, enter through the gallery double door entrance.”

(Call for volunteer): We are looking for someone to take photos at the meeting, and to post about the meeting afterwards, on our blog.

Bring a snack to share!
