The focus of Art Rave’s Wednesday social is “socializing”, a chance to be among friends and enjoy some conversation and laughter.
Erin Ryding, the force behind the amazing Light Up the Night luninary display at Rollin Gallery, will demonstrate how to create a luminary.
If you attended Art Rave’s January Social and took part in Cheryl Iwanowsky’s workshop, don’t miss Art Rave’s March 25th Social.
Again, besides donated her time, talent AND the clay, Cheryl was kind enough to fire all your pieces and will be bringing them to the Social and offering a Glazing workshop.
Cheryl is donating all materials and will re-fire your glazed piece to give you a finished piece.
We can’t thank Cheryl enough!
See you March 25th at Char’s Landing, 7PM.
