Join us at Headwaters Music & Arts for Pottery & Pints, on August 15th. Enjoy a relaxing Thursday afternoon glazing pottery and drinking good brew, from 3 – 5:30pm. Headwaters Resident Potter, Tom Daly, will walk you through the process of glazing two pottery pieces created by Daly, such as a beer mug or bowl. In between pieces you can try your hand at basic pottery techniques. There will be plenty of breaks for socializing and enjoying beer. There will be a cash bar on campus courtesy of Brigid’s Pub. Absolutely no art experience is required. Come learn in a fun and supportive environment surrounded by your friends. 21+. Advance registration required. The cost to attend is $45 ($40 for Headwaters members)
