If you are in the Rock Hill, SC area, or even close, "Ceramics and More" at 190 Chester Street is more than worth experiencing. It is a ceramics studio and much, much more. My daughter and I have never painted ceramics before, but we learned a lot from the family members who own the place. They were super helpful and showed us the ins and outs of ceramics. We literally had hundreds of ceramics to choose from right on site to fulfill our creativity needs. Plus, they were super affordable.
Photography Tips: Luckily they have HUGE windows for great lighting in order to get fantastic pictures while you are there. As you capture the memories you are creating, remember to try different angles and to get the details as well as the pull backs. I also changed my Aperture as I worked through taking the images above. The lower number aperture (f/1.8) allows for more bokeh (background blur).
You can stop at Ceramics and More any time during open hours (in the pictures), or you can attend a class. They also having painting class, jewelry making classes, and more. Check out their Facebook page to get updates on the events they hold. Enjoy getting your artistry on!
