Khnemu Studio 2018

Happy New Year - We are planning for a great 2018
Khnemu Studio - Root Cafe - Fernwood 1891
Hello Studio Friends,

Welcome 2018!  The year I plan to organize many details and create new opportunities in this crazy life.  Thank you for your continued interest,and for allowing me to share my passions with you, especially through the building & growing the last few years.
Did you know we have 3 LOCATIONS?
offering a connection to the artist & the land
Handmade & Locally Sourced * Fine Art & Fine Craft * CafĂ©, Coffeehouse & Spirits * Solar Powered Pottery Studio & Farm....all located in Fennville MI.  

This newsletter is filled with info and a calendar of events for all locations, recipes and tips!   

Winter is production mug making time in the pottery studio, I usually make 2000-3000 custom mugs every winter.  I find the repetitive nature of production work allows me to think and organize. The last 5 years I have used the time to build additional locations, write grants, apply for licenses for liquor, etc.   2018...I am using this time to hopefully pull everything together and roll out ideas that I have been working on in the back part of my brain.  

Like the following idea:
We are excited to announce that Khnemu Studio will be offering pottery studio memberships...see details for information on this great opportunity for clay artists.

And Team TRIVIA nights at ROOT...see below.
The first order of 350 mugs is completed and delivered to Tripelroot in Zeeland, MI..they make some great brews!

Please feel free to contact me if you have any suggestions or comments.   I always appreciate feedback, as we continue to grow.

Stay Warm!
