Mary has been creating pottery for about five years and is accomplished in wheel thrown pottery and hand built clay work. She spends many hours in her home studio in West Knoxville, as well as other larger studios around the area. Mary's inspiration is nature and the world around her – which is clearly visible in the art she creates. She focuses mainly on creating functional pieces that are typically simplistic in style, then finishes each piece with its own unique touch. The clay bodies and glazes used are oven, microwave, and dishwasher safe.

To educate the public about black bears and the regional threats facing them; 2.) To rehabilitate orphaned and injured bears for release to the wild; and 3.) To research bear attributes which may help solve other environmental or health issues.
Please come and take advantage of this opportuntiy to support, donate and help such a worthy cause!

No experience necessary! Brenda will first guide you through making a gorgeous felted flower pin. After getting your hands wet and honing your skills, you will then move on to a nuno felted scarf. Learn to migrate layers of fabric and fibers using water, soap and agitation. You will love the softness, patterns and textures that form by combining alpaca, merino, mohair, silk and designer yarns into one original and unique piece of wearable art! No two will be alike… The possibilities are endless!
All materials, refreshments, and lunch included.
Cost is $115 per person.
Space is limited! To reserve your spot, please contact Amy Rochelle at firstname.lastname@example.org
