Also, save the date for a Pottery Slam on Thursday, October 30 at District Clay featuring Dan Finnegan, Sam Taylor and Mark Shapiro. These potters will make some of their own pots, collaborate on the same pots and throw down the gauntlet to challenge each other to try new things. The audience will be invited to throw ideas into the ring as well in a very interactive way. Light refreshments will be provided.

The event will take place at District Clay, 2414 Douglas Avenue NE near Brookland. To register, click here and choose Pottery Jam from the class options.
