A big thank you to those who came out to see us at the annual Malvern Blooms Festival at Burke Park on May 1, 2016.

It was a rain or shine event, and we had both – along with some chilly temperatures…nevertheless, we shared information about classes, workshops and summer camps and look forward to seeing you at The Center on Central as the weather warms!

IT’S A GIRL – CERAMICS DEPARTMENT DIRECTOR MELISSA MYTTY WELCOMES WILLOW PAIGE NICKEL

It is with great pleasure that I announce the birth of my daughter Willow Paige Nickel. She joined us February 18th at 5:17 p.m. at Bryn Mawr Hospital. She weighed in at a whopping 10 lbs 10 ounces and measured 22 inches long. She is one big and happy baby. My husband Marty and I are so thrilled to be parents and to start our journey learning about all things newborn. Who knew a 6 day old could be so busy!

All the Best,
Melissa
