New Studio Classes!


Gifts and Goodies

Love the idea of a child's homemade gift, but you always seem to run out of time (or patience). We have the solution for you! It is our new children's program called Gift and Goodies. It is a two hour class where your child will make a ceramic gift to brighten someone's day. Just when you think this class can't get any better, it does. In addition to a hand made gift, each participant will receive a voucher for a sweet treat from Loveland Sweets. It's a perfect combination: a handmade gift and a yummy goody. We schedule the Gift & Goodies event two to three weeks before a gift giving holiday, so it will be ready in plenty of time.
Scheduled days are on specific Sundays from 4:30 - 6:30pm.
January 28 - Valentine’s Day
April 29 - Mother's Day
May 6 - Father's Day
June 3 -end of school, teacher’s present

Sculpting Class!

Raddle Animal Project

Whistle Stop is excited to be offering a new Sculpture class beginning in 2018. Mari Brock will be sharing her time and talents on Sunday afternoons in a four week class all about sculpture. She will start with beginning techniques and lead students step by step though the sculpting process. Classes initially will involve instructor lead projects, but as students gain confidence and skills, participants can choose projects that they find most interesting. The first class will be held on February 11, 18, 25 and March 2 from 4:30 - 7:00pm.
