Fiesta Earrings

Who doesn't love a fun, colorful pair of earrings?  Learn to create the earring base with a single piece of wire. This is a good opportunity for a quick introduction to working with heavy gauge wire. Come explore the tools that make that job easier. Learn to coil wire around the base and embellish with beads or crystals. Learn to form the ear wires and add them to your earrings. Wear your Fiesta Earrings home.

Ceramic Bowls and Plates

Souper Bowl for

FUNDING FOOD & Support for the CAC

Support local food banks and the Cultural Activities Center all in one evening.   Bring a group of 6 to 10 friends and your own refreshments and make a bowl.   If you choose to keep your bowl, pay $25.00 per bowl about the size of a medium soup bowl. We will glaze and fire it and call when it is ready for you to pick it up.  Larger bowls will be priced according to size. If you choose to donate your bowl, your bowl along with many others will be sold in October at a Souper Bowl event to support local Food pantries and the CAC.   Celebrity bowls will be auctioned and Souper Soup recipes will be featured in September & October.   A portion of all proceeds will go to local food pantries to serve those in need and a portion stays with the CAC to support creative missions in the arts for the community.

 

Call 254-773-9926 to reserve your Souper Bowl party event.   Great for children, "girls' night out," bridal shower, church groups and more.  Come by the CAC and see some of our bowls already on display.
