Central Park/ STARworks want people to realize we had better buy local products because lots of e-good things (like economy, environment, employment and education) will come back to us later on. Might not to us right a way, but to our children and to our future.

Firstly, Santiago took them to STARworks clay factory and told where materials of our local clay mix come from, and also how we process clay. Then students watched demonstration how to make clay house by Okeeweemee clay and started building their house on a banding wheel. It was only one hour class but they did great job.
Those houses will be dried, bisqued and glaze fired in three weeks and return to them. Thank you for coming to clay studio and hope students had great time.
