    I had a question about the Mother’s Day bowls on May 5th. My husband is interested in doing it, and I would love to come and watch, but I was not planning on making a bowl. Is that possible for me to come watch him do it? Would there be a $3 fee for me? Although your time slots are 10 minutes, how much time would we be at your facility for this experience?

    1. There is not a fee to watch at this event. Look forward to seeing you guys May 5th.
