We’re hearing that folks are missing our Saturday Soirees and we’re sorry about that – we’ll do one as soon as we can!! In the meantime .. Soiree at home with this fun kit!! Just $20!
Make your own adorable pottery lamb bowl with video help from our pottery instructor, Rebecca Braswell. You’ll order your kit and choose your glaze color for the inside of the bowl. We’ll put kits together to order with your glaze picks.
Pick up your kit, follow along with Rebecca on her instructional video, then bring it back to us to finish up firing. You’ll pick up your lamb two weeks later.
NEW project coming soon! By the way, we are planning to hold our next Soiree on Saturday, July 18.
We will email you the link for the video with your completed order!

Instructor: Jessica Hudgins, Founder & Director, Georgia Writers’ Project REGISTER HERE$12/class for members, $15 for non-members.It’s not too late to jump in – her students are loving this class!! “A writing exercise that pulled two stories out of me that I hadn’t realized were there. I will sign up for the rest of the series.” ~~ Genie BernsteinThis short fiction workshop is for writers who are currently working on a novel or on a short story collection. Over the course of nine weeks, we’ll be looking at Lucia Berlin’s short fiction. This workshop will be especially helpful for someone who needs help generating new material.Students should be prepared to participate in in-class activities, discussion, and short lectures, and to complete weekly writing assignments based on our readings of Berlin’s work. The class will take place via Zoom. Jessica can help anyone set up that software, if needed!Registration required 24 hours in advance.
Show your love … get a MWCA tee!
Our pottery instructor, Rebecca Braswell had one of these shirts made for herself and loved it. She decided to share the love and it can be a little fundraiser for us! Order your own MWCA tee here … (and many thanks to Sandy Blanchard for the lovely design!)
So many thanks to our volunteers who are helping us paint the gallery and shop!! I’d say we’re at least 25% done so far. The gallery will be spiffed up and shiny white in time for the regional show in August.
BIG THANKS to: Sandy Blanchard
If you’d like to help out, it’s EASY — volunteers are coming in at their convenience anytime when we’re open. Call us at 770-207-8937 for more info.
