Field Trip to the Florence Griswold Museum Thursday!

“Clay Nation” at the Potting Shed is a Hit!

Denise explains the concept
Kids ages 7 and up were invited to come to the Potting Shed to build a fairy or gnome house out of clay with resident artist Denise Bennett Minerly.  The four-part series has already proven to be a great hit, giving participants a chance to create their own clay house, compose a creative writing piece about their new world with our very own Drew Lamm from Taste Life Twice Writing Workshops, glaze the house & then create a nature-inspired setting to complete the exhibit.  Houses will be on display during our October 3rd Soccer Saturday.  Click below to see more photos of the sessions!

Raised beds & table
