Bone Creek Museum of Agrarian Art and the Columbus Arts Council have partnered to present:
Raku Firing Workshop
The workshop will be held on Saturday, July 15, from 8:00AM (kiln set up)-approximately 3:00PM at St. Luke’s Methodist Church (620 D Street) in David City. Mike Arnold, an art teacher at Papillion-LaVista South high school and artist in “150 for Nebraska’s 150th”, will lead participants through raku glazing techniques as well as raku kiln set-up and firing processes. Cost is $50 per participant. Participants need to bring at least two bisque-fired ceramic pieces, larger than an “open hand” but no larger than 12″x12″, made of raku clay. Participants must be at least 16 years old to register.
Lunch will be provided. Registration forms are available at Bone Creek Museum. You may also call the museum at (402)367-4488 or email at [email protected] to register.
Corn Fest 2017
September 2017, TBD
Did you attend Bone Creek’s Corn Fest last year? Guests had a wonderful time in the gallery space for an artist talk then out to District 10 in Linwood for a corn-themed farm to table style dinner and handmade plates. After heavy afternoon rains, it turned out to be a beautiful evening. We received so much positive feedback that the Public Relations/Marketing Committee of Bone Creek is busy planning another memorable event. Dates, details, and information about how to purchase tickets is coming soon!
