Paint your own handmade clay cup

Just in time to welcome cooler weather, paint your own handmade clay cup wheel-thrown by local artist Emma Podolin. Colored slips and sgrafitto, a carving technique, will be used to decorate the surface of our pots. Emma will glaze and fire the cups to be food safe. This will be held outside in the library backyard under the tent. We welcome adults and youth to participate in this hands-on program.
