Join the spirited fun as A Maze in Pottery hosts local author David Quinn reading his clever new book for kids, Go to Sleep, Little Creep (Crown Books for Young Readers, July 2018).

Guided by one of our A Maze-ing studio artists, you and your “Little Monster” will enjoy creating a personalized Halloween-themed Dinner Plate, having fun together with new pottery painting techniques designed just for young fingers. Take home an autographed copy of this new book and a one of a kind “Little Creep” paper bag puppet!

About the Book
“With the sun rising, these little ones will do anything to stay up just one more minute. Daddy Vampire is forced to fetch them one more snack, Mommy Mummy is cajoled to give one more cuddle, and so on. But these parents are tired, frustrated, and ready for bed. Quinn’s clever rhymes (“I’ll always love you, to the grave. / But frankly, dear, it’s sleep I crave”) are paired with dark-toned illustrations of cute little monsters looking mostly sleepy. It all ends up comfortably well, with all the little creatures snoozing. Good for reading to a classroom or one-on-one, this delightfully ghoulish tale shows that even monster parents have it tough when putting little creatures to bed.”

This unique program is geared to children 4 to 6 years of age and is taught at the A Maze in Pottery studio. Your child will spend one hour of real quality time listening to a story and painting a pottery project that correlates to the story.
Themes for these classes usually tie into an upcoming season or holiday. Your child will make items such as; a cereal bowl, cocoa mug, breakfast plate, family serving dish, room plaque, desk organizer and other original pieces of art which can be used as gifts for family members and friends or to be kept for use right at home.
Due to everyones busy schedules, we have found it best to have a parent get a group together for these classes. This way you can arrange a time and day that works with your child’s and his or her friends schedule.
