Project: Clay Dragonflies & Butterflies

Northern Clay Center (NCC) proudly presents the Family Creation Station. All ages and abilities are welcome to participate in this activity. Get in touch with your inner artist as you create and decorate a clay butterfly, dragonfly or garden critter sculpture. NCC teaching artists will help you create a one-of-a-kind piece of ceramic art. Grab your friends and family, along with your creative spirit, and learn to make and decorate in clay!

Projects will be brought back to NCC for firing and participants will pick-up their fired projects 3 weeks after the event at Lyngblomsten. Participants will be given a pickup slip with all of the pertinent information.
