Location: Ames Center Black Box Theatre 12600 Nicollet Avenue
Burnsville, MN 55337
From the basement to the barn, your beloved Church Basement Ladies are back and getting busy with life outside the kitchen. After the last of the hotdish is served, the coffee pot is emptied, and the Jello molds are put away, these steadfast, sturdy women head to their farms, peel off their good girdles, and get on with their daily chores. In between picking eggs, milking cows, and dusting knickknacks, they congregate with some of the other lovable folks who inhabit this rural community: Earl, who delivers the mail up and down Rural Route One; Fergus, the hired man; and Tillie, who chronicles the action for the Fish County Weekly. With plenty of crazy antics, loads of fresh laughs, and spanking new original songs, YOU SMELL BARN celebrates rural life in the 1950’s. And, at the center of it all, are your favorite Church Basement Ladies. Whether you’ve seen several versions, or are new to the world of the basement, the 7th in the Church Basement Ladies series is a musical treat for all.

Raku firing is an exciting ceramics-firing technique in which you quickly heat a piece of pottery, remove it from the kiln when the glaze has melted, and place it in a bucket of wood shavings, which can be explosive! Ceramic artist Laremy Ellsworth will cover the entire process of Raku firing, from preparing the piece for glazing to cleaning the piece after the firing. You’ll learn about how different glazes react to this unique firing process to result in striking effects and one-of-a-kind pieces. Best of all, you’ll create your own piece to take home. Once you’ve completed the class, you’ll understand why ‘Raku’ translates to ‘enjoyment.’
