Take the Highway to the Artway!



Last month, I made a long-awaited trip to Polymer Clay Express at the Artway in Laurel MD. My ostensible reason was to see my friends Rob and Wilma Yost but we all know that’s not true. I wanted to shop.

IMG_8943_newThe Artway was easy to find.  I just set the GPS and the car took me there.  How can you miss it?

IMG_8944_newThe place is huge as you can see and this is only one room!

IMG_8948_newLots of magazines and videos to peruse


 They have a big, bright classroom with lots of tables and lots of ovens.    Scheduled teachers include Jana Roberts Benzon, Kathleen Dustin and Jeff Dever.  Check out the Class Schedule

But wait, there’s more!  Laurel MD is a charming little town with quaint shops, restaurants and historical sites.  There’s plenty to do after you finish your shopping.  For more information, press here.  And things are always happening at the Artway.  Besides getting the classroom up and running, Wilma continues to improve the Dream Machine and other tools and I hear that a shipment of motors is due in the near future.  To keep up with the latest happenings:
