July 2012 Meeting: Translucent Clay

We have moved! Our meetings will be at the City Arts Center @ 3000 General Pershing Blvd on the fair grounds—use the May entrance. The meeting will be in the Bridge Gallery and starting in August we’ll move to Studio 2, our regular meeting room.

This meeting is on July 14, 2012 from 1:30 to 5pm.

Jane will be the first teacher in our new place. She has worn many hats in the guild, among them being president and librarian. Polymer Cafe has published her works and we have benefited from her lessons. She will teach us about transparent clay.
