An annual membership at York River Pottery Co. is definitely the gift that keeps on giving. Just ask Karen Cook, the very talented artist responsible for this amazing Halloween creation. She also happens to be an annual member. I wanted to highlight this masterpiece in its own post as I think it shows you the power of membership!
Karen began her membership in November of 2017. The perks of membership include getting 20% off of all pottery that you paint as well as your first 50 minutes free ($5 value) during every painting session. Karen was able to buy this bowl at 20% off, then paint it over the course of 10 months, taking her time, and never feeling rushed. For many weeks she would come every week for an hour at a time to relax, enjoy the view and paint and she would pay nothing. Occasionally, she would want to paint something else and give the bowl a rest, but because she was a member, she rarely paid more than a $2 studio fee and she always saved 20%!
Memberships give you the luxury of never having to worry about studio fees and always knowing you have somewhere to go when you feel the need to be creative or just want to relax and watch the sailboats, birds and occasionally dolphin while painting. There are other perks too, including free custom stencils and free access to the Yorktown Fourth of July fireworks. With Christmas around the corner, an annual membership would be the perfect present! Family Memberships are also available!
