BIRD! A clay sculpting workshop

This two-part workshop is fifth in a series of intensive animal sculpting sessions offered by artist Susan Halls.

In Part One (May 4, 2-5 pm) we will study birds in all their forms - from the humble sparrow to the wisest of owls or a bird of your imagination. Seated, standing, or nesting. our aim is to build an interpretation, not a realistic copy, out of clay. Then our creations head off to the kiln.

In Part Two (May 13, 6-8 pm) we will apply stains, paints, inks and glazes to the fired clay surface to give your BIRD a permanent colorful finish.

All techniques will be demonstrated and personal assistance offered. The $75 fee includes tools, materials, and one firing. No experience necessary.

Register at the bookstore or online.  Attendance is limited to eight.

UPDATE ON FILLING THE GAP IN THE TRAIL

IT’S COMING!!  The rail trail from Yale University in New Haven, CT, that is.  Yes, the rail trail all the way from New Haven to Northampton is indeed coming. Under-development for over 20 years, but nearing completion, the Farmington Canal Greenway Trail  should be done in just a few more years.   
 
Come to the Tandem Bagel Company on Wednesday evening May, 7 at 6:30 p.m. for an update about where the gaps are and how they might be closed, and general information about the trail. Meet the groups and advocates working to achieve this.

We have changed the pricing and there is now a $5 SUGGESTED charge for this event that will go towards the cost of the venue and food. We have a benefactor in-place with a major donation that will cover some of our costs.  If the cost was holding you back from attending, please do book-in now.  If you've already paid, and would like a refund, we can accommodate that if you'd like.  
 
Tandem Bagel Company is located in the original New Haven & Northampton RR station at 9 Railroad St. in downtown Easthampton, adjacent to the beautiful Manhan Rail Trail and across from the spectacular mural by Nora Valdez and the citizens of Easthampton.  Come to see old friends and meet new ones.  

Tandem Bagels  will have a wonderful cheese and fruit platter along with iced-tea and water.  We have a capacity of only 50 people and thus we need to run this as a RSVP event.
