Join us in November for a two-day pottery and nature art workshop series. This workshop includes Sunday, November 3rd, 10am-2pm workshop held at the Wild Roots Art Barn and Saturday, November 16th 4-8pm (Parents Night Out) held at the Art Lab in Old Town Fort Collins. In these classes we will be creating pottery and other nature-based art crafts. Projects made in the class can be kept as keepsakes or perfect gifts to be given away for the holidays. This class is aimed for kids 5-10.

The Sunday class will be held at the Wild Roots Art Barn (see directions below). Please pack a water bottle and lunch for your child. During this class we will be making nature crafts and working with pottery. 

In the Saturday evening class we will be finishing our art projects and enjoying autumn inspired stories. Please pack a water bottle, lunch box dinner (dinner option will be also be offered for an extra charge) and cozy making items (stuffies, blanket and pillow). We will be providing popcorn and cider to enjoy during storytelling time!

The two days allow us time to dry our pottery to apply glaze on the last class before being fired at Smokestack Pottery. Finished pottery pieces will be picked up after the last class at a specified date and location.
