It’s been a bit since I’ve posted, and that is mostly because there is a LOT going around here! (If you want to stay really up-to-date on everything, follow me on Twitter! @BURNING_FORK)
I’m still settling in in Knoxville, and now in addition to my beautiful office and retail space, I have signed a lease for the space right next door to house my pottery studio. Woohoo! The icing on the cake is that I am sharing the space with Blooming Earth Flowers, so there should be lots of lovely blooms around most of the time.
This means that I can now officially start scheduling pottery and other art classes, so be sure to stay tuned for when these are happening. I plan to host a couple of workshops for kids and adults in July, and begin regular class sessions with the start of the school year in August. For more information, visit the Lessons page.
Before I get to all that, though, I’m very excited to be working with the Glowing Body for the Downtown Kids Summer Arts and Yoga Camp! Burning Fork is offering the visual arts lessons for this super-creative camp, while Morelock Music, the Actors Co-op, and Dancing Spider Yoga will provide musical, acting, and yoga instruction for kids ages 5-12. The camp will start each day with a healthy lunch from Just Ripe, yum! For more details, click here.
This Saturday, I’ll have pottery available in a raffle during Blooming Earth Flowers’ Homebrew event—Stacey Adam will be crafting some delicious beers, and Mockingbird Events is providing the food. The event will be held here at West Jackson Workshops, 514 W. Jackson. Find out more and buy tickets here.
And finally, I have been actually making a thing or two lately! I’ll be putting a new line of aprons on Etsy soon (to wear while you bake all those fruit pies this summer!), and some new spring inspired home decor, clothing, and ceramic jewelry items, too. Keep a lookout at burningforkstudio.etsy.com! As soon as my pottery studio’s up and running I’ll have some ceramics to add to that list. Now, if I can just find some good strong people to help me move that kiln…
