Spring Break celebrants can enjoy a special ceramics experience at the Hoffman Center Monday, March 22, by participating in a “Paint Your Own Piggy Bank” PlayShop. The event will teach glazing and firing techniques. It will run from 1 to 2:30 p.m.
Each student will be provided his or her own bank. When the decorating is done, the banks will be fired in the Center’s kiln and returned to their creators by Friday afternoon – the end of spring break.
The workshop is made possible by a grant from the Bank of Astoria. “We are pleased they agreed to sponsor the PlayShop,” said Center president David Dillon. “Banks and piggy banks sure go together.”
The workshop is open to all ages, but a parent or guardian should accompany any student under 6. Bruce Phillips, a Hoffman Center Open Clay Studio volunteer and mentor, will lead the event.
The tuition for the piggy bank PlayShop is $10. Some partial or whole scholarships are available. Click here for the Piggy Bank Registration Form. Class is limited to 20 participants.
