If you grew up in Rockland County any time in the recent future you have been to at least one birthday party at Jills Ceramics. Jill is an icon. Her studio across from Germonds pool has been there as long as I can remember, and I was so glad when my son was 3 months old to find that she was still there. That’s the first time I took (A) to paint something. He made a turkey plate using his hand and i’ve treasured it for 7 years.
When (E) was born and I created RNYM I just knew I needed to work with Jill. After all- shes an under rated creative and amazing activity for both kids AND adults! Luckily Jill thought we were a good match and came on board. Three years later here we are. RNYM does several events a year with Jill and she is listed in both our classes and party directories.
This past month we had our first of several upcoming events “Halloween at Jills” which was reserved for an amazing 60 people- looks like we aren’t the only ones who LOVE Jills Ceramics.
When you show up Jill is all ready to go- with paint, smocks, brushes, and water all set up. Children are then able to walk around (with parents if super young) to choose a piece to paint. They can paint alone, with you, or you can have Jill help you (if you need a handprint turkey for instance). There are two different kinds of paint to choose from, the one that will be ready to go that day, or the glaze that needs to be kiln baked and picked up at a later date.
There are plenty of different pieces to choose from, its actually pretty hard to choose. As I walked around photographing different options, I was silently planning my projects and those for the kids at our upcoming events. I was sooooo excited.
At this event once complete Jill had a little goody bag ready for each child participant <3 it was so super fun. (E) was super proud of her work (as am I) and I look forward to displaying it at Halloween time for years to come.
Jill not only does events like ours, she has open hours weekly, does FABULOUS birthday parties, and ADULT BYOB events, one of which we will he hosting soon (cause seriously? who wouldn’t want some wine and some painting?).
To contact Jill you can call her at: (845) 623-4975 Or just stop by the studio during her open hours. As always we appreciate that you let her know that you heard about her here <3 Our next event (already 1/3 full) is on 11/18 from 12-3 and we love to have people come and keep us company!! To RSVP either post in the FB event or Send us an email at RocklandNYMom@ yahoo.com. Happy Painting!!!
