Its easy to lose track of time especially during the holidays. Here’s a few important dates to remember as you make plans for creating holiday gifts at Your Creation Station. Remember, your best bet is to give yourself as much time as possible to complete and pick up anything you make and plan on giving as a gift this Christmas.
Here are important dates to remember for the 2017 holiday season:
A holiday tradition for many of the families who come to our studio. Ornaments you create yourself make great gifts for teachers and friends, stocking stuffers and keepsakes for years to come.
For the clay ornament workshops, your get a pound of clay to roll out flat and cut your own ornaments from. We have a bin full of cookie cutters to cut out the shapes and even more bins full of stuff you can press into the soft clay to add interesting surface decorations. Feel free to bring your own cookie cutters or textures to use.
We roll out the clay as many times as you like but after three or four rolls, the clay become unworkable. One pound of clay makes anywhere from 6 to 30 ornaments depending on how big you make them. Most people get about 10 to 12.
When you finish making your ornaments, we’ll let them dry in our studio and then bisque fire them. The whole process takes about a week. After the ornaments are fired once, you can return at any time you like to paint them. Once finished, we’ll glaze and fire them again.
Plan to make three non-concurrent trips to Your Creation Station for this project. One trip to make the ornaments, one trip to paint the ornaments and once to pick up the finished pieces. One pound of clay still costs $25, everything else is included.
We have devoted the following days (all the stuff is out and ready to go, all day long) to making ornaments. Plan on arriving anytime after we open at 10 AM (noon on Sundays) but before we close at 7 PM (or 5 PM on Sundays), we’re planning on staying late so don’t worry about it:
Friday, November 3, 2017 (No School)
Friday, November 10, 2017 (No School)
Sunday, November 12, 2017
Wednesday, November 15, 2017
Saturday, November 18, 2017
Tuesday, November 22, 2017 (No School)
If you can’t make one of these days, don’t let that stop you. Depending on what’s happening on any particular day and given the space required to spread out and work, we can’t promise we’ll be able to fit you in on a walk-in basis but you can be sure we’ll give it a try. Are you the leader of a Scout Troop? Give us a call and we can schedule a day for your troop to come in, siblings and friends are always welcome!
