This 2-session OutPost class will be held at C&C Coffee, just down the street from the Council at 15 North Main. Students will glaze a hand thrown mug and learn the science of a tasteful latte. In the first class, you will choose from a selection of bisque fired mugs and then decorate it with your own unique design. During the second class, you will receive your finished mug, vote on the mug with the best design and enjoy a coffee beverage in your new creation. Emily Thompson, from C&C Coffee and Sherree Devor, from the Council for the Arts, have teamed up for this unique OutPost experience.
