ABOUT THIS EVENT
Arts & DIY
Enjoy a hot cup o' joe in your hand-built mug! Techniques radical enough for any level of student to create something truly surprising; a cup you will want to use again and again. In fact, you won't be able to find it in the cupboard because it's always in use! You will be asking yourself why every plate, spoon, and fork does not match your favorite cup.
