Just in time for Valentine’s Day- Create a handmade keepsake with Leelanau Pottery Company!

The Great Lakes Children’s Museum is once again partnering with Stephanie Starner, owner of the Leelanau Pottery Company to offer another wonderful class. On Saturday, January 27 from 10am to 11:30am, participants will create a pair of heart-shaped plates by blowing bubbles into glaze. Those that sign up to create these unique keepsakes will get into the Museum free of charge. Plates will be available for pick-up one week later. From the event description:

“Join me at the Great Lakes Children’s Museum and learn how to blow bubbles with glaze. You’ll learn my signature bubble glaze technique and apply it to your own set of two, handmade, heart shaped appetizer size plates. This is a fun quick class with will allow you to create lasting, sentimental memories by capturing your child/ families breath as bubbles! A special idea might be to bring a grandparent for a special, lasting memory. Each plate will be food grade and dishwasher and microwave safe.”

As Stephanie points out, the finished design isn’t the only unique thing captured while making bubble glaze pottery.  “The cool part is as you are breathing, creating your own bubbles or like if you bring your grandkids if you’re a grandparent, it’s their breath creating the bubbles on the [plates], which if you get sentimental about it, which I do, I think is darling and amazing. So if you take that route, it’s really special,” said Starner.

So sign up with Leelanau Pottery Company and come to the Great Lakes Children’s Museum on Saturday, January 27 from 10am to 11:30am. You’ll be able to make lasting memories and create a keepsake that will be close to your heart for years to come.
