for kids of all ages
Do you have a friend who is in the know of all the cool things to do around the city? I do and I'm so glad she and her daughter are in our lives! She suggested Grey Fox Pottery and while I knew I would like it I didn't anticipate loving the experience.
We had a mini heat wave here in Minnesota so this was the perfect indoor activity. Never mind that when we got there the A/C wasn't on because soon they turned it on and it became the sort of cool that I like - not frigid cold, just cool enough to take the edge off.
I'm so grateful to be in that phase of my life where I can wander the shelves of unfinished pottery and choose whatever I like and not worry (too much) about the price.
I chose a little bud vase and this brush caddy. Towards the end, I did try the bubble technique that shown in the finished yellowish caddy. I chose to do blue on the inside and I can't wait to see it!
Lotus Bud chose a heart box and a little fairy which will be fused on. So cute! The girls did great. I feared they would tear through the painting going from one item to the other, but they both made good choices and stuck with them. When they were done, they were done. There were no broken pieces, no crazy energy that had them running around the store. So we Mamas were able to finish our larger pieces.
In fact the girls did great! They were focused on their painting, they were delicate with their technique. We all left with a sense of accomplishment!
