Looking for something to do with the ladies? If there's no local "Ladies Night Out" or "Girls Night Out" event coming up soon, make your own with a ladies night out at a local Oakland County or Metro Detroit, MI pottery and art center.
I did this just recently. I contacted some of the moms from my kids' school and we got a group of us to head out to a nearby pottery studio for some wine and do it yourself pottery.
I'm sure they all work differently, but at the pottery studio near us, we had three hours in a room all to ourselves. We brought in snacks and drinks and celebrated a night out while socializing with friends. When we finally chose our pottery pieces to be painted, we sat down and began our pottery projects. All of us were totally engrossed in our pottery creations. It was so relaxing to be working on the pottery, meanwhile chatting it up with the ladies.
The time flew by! Everyone enjoyed painting the pottery and worked together to give each other ideas. We helped one another come up with great color schemes and designs. One mom even got so tired that another helped her paint the back side of her platter. It was a nice bonding event and a great time to get to know each other better. I was pleasantly surprised by all the beautiful pottery pieces we created!
And, we added to the fun with creative discussions... going around the table one by one and telling something about ourselves that nobody else knew. We also told stories about how we met our husbands. Overall, the night was filled with joy, laughter, and relaxation. I'd highly recommemd it!
