At the beginning of the year, I accepted a friend’s invitation to pay it forward. The premise was to make something by hand for five friends without expecting anything in return.
The pressure was on. I suddenly realized I didn’t actually have the skills to deliver on the deal, so I turned to Chestnut Creek School of the Arts in Galax and enrolled in their Beginning Pottery class.
Check out their upcoming class schedule. They can teach you everything from how to make a dulcimer to charcoal portraits and stone carving. I’m here to tell you, if they can teach me how to throw a pot, they can teach anything to anyone.
