Our first ArtWorks meeting of 2019 took place in the Idea Lab at WCPL – Kirby Branch. A great time was had by all and most everyone said, “we need to do this again”. As I got my hands dirty making a pinch pot, I looked around the table at my fellow artists and it was like we were kids again. Didn’t matter what we made, we were having fun sharing ideas and creating. Members checked out the pottery wheels, embroidery machine, sewing machine, printers for posters and heat transfers, heat press, Carvey, a 3D printer and button makers. I brought our ArtWorks logos and we transferred to mugs via heat press. Those who made pottery pieces will return in a few weeks to glaze their work and then kiln fire. We will have other play nights, for sure.
– In creative spirit, Janet
