Born in a Barn: Saturday Open Studios

We are currently restructuring our open studios programs…  Please check back soon for current details.  -6.3.17-










First & Second Saturdays of Each Month!

The Dairy Barn is proud to bring the community the return of this fabulous series.  The idea is simple; on the first and second Saturday of each month, Lyn will be in the Barn from 1:00-5:00 in the ceramics room or art room, and can help people who walk in off the street create a small ceramic art project.

1:00-2:00 We’ll have “Littles and Bigs”19381_10203811382107866_4328759432127866171_n

For this parent and child activity, Lyn will have a simple ceramic “Project Du Jour” each Saturday. From the 1:00-2:00 hour, Lyn will be available to help guide children and parents through making the project.  Projects are generally $5 each, including glazing and firing.  As these projects are ceramic, they will need to be fired and then glazed, and fired again.  Each session a new project will be offered, but we will also have a glazing station for folks returning from the previous week or weeks.  No registration is required, just come on in!

 Here is what we have planned for April and May

April 1st: Dairy Barn Fest!

For this Open Studio, we have special free crafts from 1:00-3:00.

Children with their parents can come and make some ribbon wands, tissue paper flowers, and window sun catchers!

Folks returning to glaze previous projects can do so as well 1:00-3:00

April 8th: Pinch Pot Planters


We will make pinch pots and turn them into adorable animals with a little drainage hole.  We will under glaze them and they can be taken home the following week.  Plant a succulent or an herb right in them!

 $5 per planter


May 5th Garden Markers! – Cancelled

We will make slabs of clay and cut them to any shape we want, then use pasta letters to make super neat garden markers for our herbs and veggies at home!

$5 per 4 markers


May 12th: Pinch Pot Garden Gnomes!


They’ll be a little less complicated than the picture, but our little gnomes will be super cute.  The perfect garden guardians!

$5 each, will need to return to glaze next month





Upcoming projects will also be announced on The Dairy Barn’s Facebook Page.


2:00-5:00 General Open Studios

Children and adults can create their own unique ceramic projects.  This is not a class, only minimal guidance will be given by Lyn or whomever is acting studio monitor.
