BirdHouses Cancelled

Due to the corona virus, this class has been cancelled.

Dates: June 6, 7 and 10.

In this class, we will be constructing birdhouses using extruded and slab-rolled parts. Various decorating techniques will be used to finish the houses. Weather permitting, we will Raku fire the houses on Friday. The tranquil setting of Thoreson Farm will inspire you of native birds living in the region.

John Huston is the GAAC Potter-in-Residence at Thoreson Farm. John has been a potter for more than 40 years. He studied in Ohio and Japan and started Platte River Pottery in Benzie County in 1978. He and his wife Amy Stevens own and operate Glen Lake Artists Gallery in Glen Arbor. instagram.com/thoresonfarmpottery
