Hi, I’m Teri!
My family has crafted for as long as I can remember. Every Tuesday night, all ages would gather around my grandmother’s huge dining room table usually doing ceramics, but all sorts of projects. She would carve a slice from this big hunk of clay she kept in her fridge for us little ones to mold and create whatever we wanted while the women would practice their painting skills with fine delicate stokes on various pieces they purchased from the ceramic shop. Then my grandmother would fire it in her kiln and we could not wait will the next week to see the fantastic paint colors we had chosen. My house showcases many of those pieces today! Those Tuesday nights were more than art, they were discussions, opinions, funny work stories, advice, and topics that made me who I am today. The experiences they shared are things I share at the Urban Craft Center today. The Urban Craft Center is meant to replace that table at my Grandmother’s house.
Please, take a look around our website and get to know us. We can’t wait to see you around the table.
