Road trip to Franklin MA for the guild meeting of the New England Polymer Artists Guild.
The meetings are held at Ann Marie Donovan's home. (during the week she runs a daycare, so there is plenty of room) Meetings start at 10am with guild business discussed, then the rest of the meeting is open for claying. A wonderful lunch is prepared and shared.
It's a wonderful group and they have plans to bring in many guest instructors.
