Summer heat is in full swing in South Florida! If you need to cool off, we got plenty of mud at MIY ceramics, so come and throw some around with us.
We are trying a new format of keeping in contact with each of you and we hope you will enjoy it! In the upcoming monthly newsletters, we are planning a spotlight section for the amazing work and people from the studio, a project or technique of the month and and update of the latest goings on at the studio! This coming June we will start our Summer Camp Series for kids ages 8 and up! Remember to checkout out our calendar for events and classes, and coming soon we have some new projects that Jennifer has been excitedly piloting, so stay tuned.
