Holiday Pottery sale & giveaway Info

all the things…

We'll have piles of beautiful pottery from 21 of our incredibly talented instructors, students and owners. Throw in some free treats- coffee, hot apple cider, mountains of fresh-baked yummies, roasting marshmallows at our firepit, and giveaways and you've got yourself one fine day.

{Oh, you caught that, did you? Yep. We're giving away quite the experience. Details all the way (really...all the way) at the bottom of the event description...}

Every day starting November 16th, we'll be featuring one of our sale artists on Facebook & Instagram. Get to know them a little bit better and get a sneak peek of the amazing work they'll have at the sale. It's like getting a behind-the-scenes tour of Santa's workshop. If that were, you know, real. And, if Santa stuffed our stockings tableware instead of candy and toys. You know what I mean.

Check the nice (and naughty!) off of your list, support an Athens artist, eat some free goodies and maybe (definitely) treat yourself to a little somethin'-somethin'.

And, if that won't get you there...remember, we'll have free food. Lots of it. And a giveaway that will get you centered for the holidays (hint & bad pun in one).

Here is a list of the artists we're honored to have in our sale:

Amanda Akin, Anna Baldwin, CJ Brockinton, Zoe Daniel, Frank Jackson, Sue Lawrence, Tina Lawrence, Casey McClelland, Mary Mayes, Kathy Miller, Caroline Montague, Meeyoun Moon, Amanda Proctor, Rebecca Seidl, Chris Settel, Rob Sutherland, Jessica Sutherland, Aubree VanWinkle, Marci White, Nicole White, and Sandrine Zawacki

***GIVEAWAY DETAILS*** Rob and I will teach you and 6 friends how to use the pottery wheel at your very own private pottery party, where we'll show you how to make some incredible work of your own. Maybe a mug for your morning coffee, or a dog bowl to feed your furkid? Maybe you just *really* want to channel Patrick & Demi and that whole pottery thing is on your bucket list. Ditto.

So, how do you win already? Couple of ways.

The Instagram Way: Follow us on Instagram, find our giveaway post from 11/15 and tag 2 friends in the comments who you think would like to learn to make pottery. Get an extra entry for each additional friend you tag.

The Other Way: You can also win just by coming to the sale on December 8th. You get 1 entry for coming, and 1 for every item you buy. Buy 5 mugs, that's 6 chances to win (1 for coming to the sale and 5 for each mug!). Whether you go digital or analog, we've gotcha covered to win! And, we’re giving away 2 of these parties, so you just doubled your chances of winning. Boom.

Questions? Message us and we'll get it sorted.

Hope to see you at the sale!
