Experience the dynamic coming together of clay, fire, smoke and water in this one-day, walk-in workshop. During this exciting firing process you can actually watch the glazes melt and the colors change right before your eyes! Just walk in (FOOTWEAR IS REQUIRED), buy a piece of pre-fired handmade pottery donated by BAC potters and glaze it the day of the firing. The entire process takes approximately 3 hours.  Please arrive no later than 3 PM to begin glazing. While waiting for your pots to dry, be sure to check out other activities and shows at the Center which includes a One-Day-Only 10% OFF SALE at our Gift Shop.  Also enjoy spending some time exploring all of Buchanan's businesses, downtown and uptown, for shopping and food.
 
AND everyone is welcome to come
and just watch the fun!
