You’ll create your project at the Ludington House. The works will be fired at Mary Case’s studio which is nearby. You can come back the following week to glaze it or she will glaze it for you! Each project has tools, clay and a demonstration video. Innkeeper Ellen is also an artist and will be available to give direction.
