Over the years, we have periodically offered community classes at Ash Street Project, mostly by request. They are social affairs as much as they are about making, and valued as such. Our recent night class, " Handbuilt Tableware ", was proposed by a group of friends who wanted a weekly creative escape. They are now finishing up " Handbuilding 2, the Sequel ", and have given as much to us as we have to them! This experience has prompted us to rethink how community classes could potentially add a rich layer to the Ash Street Project, providing additional opportunities for our mentees to build experience and connection.
