Featured Family Craft: Clay Miniatures
Teacher Alex Doudetskaia has been modeling clay miniatures since she was a young girl in Russia. She has shared her love of clay with her daughter Alice, age 9, and together they have made hundreds of animals and figures. It’s a great family craft, and one that can be done by any skill level. There is an infinite variety of figures that can be made, from everyday animals to historical figures to fantasy creatures. Come join Alex and Alice in learning this fun new craft. Saturday, February 7 and 21, from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm.
