Central Maine Clay Artists and the Harlow Gallery invite the public to participating in MUG SEASON – a Mug Making Workshop on Saturday, April 12 10am -2pm  at the Harlow Gallery at 160 Water Street in Hallowell.  Participants will learn techniques to make a simple hand built mug; all ages are welcome. The potters of CMCA will provide all the materials  and instructions needed to make and decorate your own mug.   There will also be a couple potter’s wheels and demonstrations of “throwing” on the wheel.  Cost is $15 per participant.  Finished and fired mugs made will be ready for pick up within a couple weeks.  Proceeds from this workshop help fund area art programs.

2014 marks the 7th year of Mug Season, when Central Maine Clay Artists use the power of art to raise money for area schools.  Each year local potters and clay artists donate their work, time and energy to create handcrafted ceramic mugs to be offered for sale at area coffee shops.  A portion of the proceeds is donated to area schools including Whitefield, Maranacook, Gardiner, Cony, Hall-Dale, and Erskine Academy.

 ‘We make the donations to the art departments to help them pay for supplies.  We know how expensive it is to fund the arts, but we also know how important it is.  We wouldn’t be working as artists if it weren’t for our exposure to classes and materials.  We just want to make sure that continues.’ says Malley Weber, president of the Central Maine Clay Artists and owner of Hallowell Clay Works.

Central Maine Clay Artist members are Whitefield Pottery, Loken Pottery, The Potter’s House, Maple Lane Pottery, Fine Mess Pottery, Ditch Lily, Bentley, Mud Girl, Elizabeth Thorp, Hallowell Clay Works and Raw Earth Designs.
