On Tuesday morning, Creative Café came in and let us paint some ceramics. It was a fun way to spend a couple of hours and in the end I had a plate to take home.
I decided to make a plate suitable for serving Christmas food. The first step was to select a nicely shaped plate.
Then we got down to work and did some painting. This was a great time to chat with the other painters and learn a thing or two about the Fern regulars. I learned the following:
· “The sisters” aren’t sisters, and the one that came to ceramics is a very talented artist
· “The friendly woman whose husband uses a walker” is very nice and has a very nice daughter
· I am known as “the woman with the husband who reads”
This is my plate after painting.
This is my plate after clear glazing and firing.
I love my plate and it is a great memory of another Ferntastic summer vacation.
P.S. I did plan to provide my blog readers with a full blown trip report, but then we arrived at Fern and I realized I just wanted to kick back and relax, and had no interest in making trip notes and taking a thorough set of pictures.
If you want to know what Fern is like, maybe I’ll do a post or two with random thoughts from Fern that will give you a glimpse into this little slice of fun-filled paradise.
