The program will be at 1 p.m. at the Canyon Mouth Picnic Area building located at 1200 County Road 275, Cedar Bluff, AL 35959. The program will last about two hours. Clay is Nature’s Play-Doh. People have been making things out of it for thousands of years. Southeastern Indians fashioned toys, cooking utensils, beads, and decorations from clay. Early pioneers made crocks, cups, plates and bowls. Even the tiles on the space shuttle included ceramic composites. Clay is a squishy mud that can be found in many places just under the topsoil. It can be permanently hardened with practice and firewood if you do not have access to a kiln. Unfired objects can be returned to mud with a little water and then you can make something new. It’s a fun and inexpensive hobby. So come and make something wonderful and take it home. Families are encouraged to join us for this program. Although the programs are free, the $3 per car fee at the gate still applies upon entering. For more information call the park office at (256)845-9605.
