Your Creation Station has a pretty good collection of Judaica bisque available to paint throughout the year but we’ve just stocked up in time for Chanukah. Included this year are some new pieces and returning items from year’s past. Stop in and paint a menorah or any other piece of pottery no later than December 1, 2018 and we’ll have it ready for you by December 2, 2018. Remember, the earlier the better.
If there’s a school age child who likes to make stuff your buying a gift for, here’s a great idea. Your Creation Station offers an after-school Artists’ Workshop for kids age 6 to 12 (give or take). With a new series of four classes starting every month, its easy to fit it into a busy schedule.
The workshop runs for four Fridays, starting on the first Friday of every month from January to May. We’ll start the first week with a clay project each child will make and paint themselves. From there, we’ll do examples of different media we offer in the store, generally including a tie-dye, canvas painting or fused glass and a bisque painting project.
Sign up for one of the Artists’ Workshops we have scheduled for Winter and Spring of 2019 online or at our studio.
Your Creation Station is closed on Thursday, November 22, 2018 for Thanksgiving! We will be open our normal hours (10-7 Tue-Sat & 12 to 5 Sun) on Friday the 23th. Make sure you’re on our e-mail list to get our annual Thanksgiving Weekend coupon!
We’re a little behind on getting dates for our ornament workshops this year but the tradition continues! Join us on a workshop date and create your own Christmas Ornaments from clay. The ornaments make great gifts for teachers, family and friends, not to mention stocking stuffers and keepsakes your cherish 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 on Workshop Make Days Only, all other days a pound of clay is $30.
We have devoted the following days (all the stuff is out and ready to go, all day long) to making ornaments. Since we had a late start this year, we’re going to do Make Days on the Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday before Thanksgivings. 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:
Saturday, November 17, 2018
Tuesday, November 20, 2018 (No School)
Wednesday, November 21, 2018 (No School)
Thursday, November 29, 2018
Tuesday, December 4, 2018
If you can’t make one of these days, don’t let that stop you. Your welcome to stop in any day but Monday (we’re closed on Mondays) and make use of our Walk-In Clay Corner to make ornaments or anything else you like.
Scout Troops, Non-Profits and Day Cares
Are you the leader of a Scout Troop, non-profit organization or Day Care? Give us a call and we can schedule a day for your group to come in, siblings and friends are always welcome! Paint your own ornaments (that you don’t have to make yourself) are also available.
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 2018 holiday season:
Want to make your own custom tie dye shirt but can’t make it to our studio? No problem! Order your shirt online and we’ll make it for you and ship it out, free, when its finished. Choose up to three colors, a design and leave the rest to us. We’ll tie and dye the shirt for you. Our tie dye shirt are made with 100% cotton, pre-shrunk, Gildan tee shirt and professional grade Procion dyes so your shirts will stay bright for a long time. Your shirt will arrive rinsed but not washed, you’ll need to run it through a wash cycle once, with nothing else, once before wearing it.
Each custom tie dye shirt we make is made individually to order, we tie the shirt by hand, mix the dyes ourselves and apply the color. Once the shirt has been dyed, it needs some time for the colors to stain the fabric. The dye needs at least an hour to really set itself into the cotton but we let it sit at least overnight before rinsing it out. While its not a very long or involved process to make a custom tie dye shirt, it takes a little time to go through the whole process, dry it out, pack it up and send it off. Expect to have your custom tie dye shirt in about 5 to 10 days, we shoot for no more than a week. We’re closed on Mondays and process custom tie dye shirt orders during our regular business hours.
