June classes at C.Andrews Studio!

Hello Everyone!

I know its been awhile since my last blog.  And what have I been doing you ask?  I have been making product for the La Nebbia Art and Wine festivals that will be taking place every 2nd and 4th Sunday of June, July, August and September.  But more about these shows later.  What I most wanted to do is to post the C.Andrew Studio schedule of classes for June.  Because of my attendance at the Sunday festivals I will only be teaching at the studio for the summer.  We have another great line up of classes at the studio for June.  Just take a look!
