Happy Thanksgiving!! We here at MCP are taking a break from preparing and firing pottery for our December 6th Holiday Sale to enjoy some time around the table with family and friends.
As a result we will be closed Wednesday 11/27 to Friday 11/29. Drop-In hours will resume on Small Business Saturday 11/30 1-5pm.
As I reflect upon what I have to be thankful for I can’t help but think of the amazing community of makers and friends that has developed over the past nine years at Midwest Clay Project. I am excited to see how MCP grows and develops as we embark on filling out our new studio space!
Midwest Clay Project is proud to co-sponsor this year’s Atwood Winnebago Winter Festival! Stop by our studio to buy one-of-a-kind gifts, try your hand on the potter’s wheel, or sign up for a class. This family-friendly event offers the opportunity to chat with the artists, watch process demonstrations, try throwing a pot, enjoy refreshments, and purchase from a selection of the latest and greatest ceramics produced by some of MCP’s current studio members. Cash or cards only please.
Now is the time to sign up for a clay class at Midwest Clay Project! We have spaces open in our Late Fall Classes. This session runs 10/29 – 12/14 (no classes the week of Thanksgiving) and classes meet once per week. Make your holiday gifts from scratch this season or treat yourself to an enjoyable experience and make new friends in our clay community!
Stop in to Midwest Clay Project this Friday, October 4th, 5-9pm to check out this Fall’s Gallery Night exhibition and sale. We will have an eclectic selection of Studio Members’ work on view, refreshments available, and live making demonstrations throughout the evening! Come early for the best selection!
We will also have Brooke Norstead from the UW-Madison Geology Museum onsite during the event with geological samples of raw materials commonly used in ceramic glaze recipes. Prepare to be amazed!
Our future neighbor, The Bodgery, will be holding a Grand Opening event today 9/21/19, 12-5pm at 740 Oscar Ave. Stop by to see all the cool making possibilities available at their new 14,000 sf location! MCP will be set up next door with information about what is coming this October for us at 742 Oscar Ave! See you there!
The kids are back in school, temperatures are cooling, and the Winnebago Street reconstruction is complete. It sounds like the time is right to sign up for a pottery class. Spaces are still available in Wheel 1, Wheel 2, and Handbuilding 1…but space is limited so enroll now!
We’re taking a break and hope you enjoy some well-earned time off as well! Midwest Clay will have reduced hours the week of July 1-6. No open studio drop-in or general hours available this week. Please email with questions or requests.
Members may enjoy continued access, but studio services (kilns, clay, and glazes) will be suspended 7/4-7/6. Students, please feel free to take advantage of the alternate schedule emailed to you.
