Kansas City Urban Potters (KCUP) Holiday Sale, Friday, November 28 - Sunday, November 30, 2014, Temple SPACE. The Kansas City Urban Potters (KCUP) are hosting a Holiday Sale. Functional and decorative ceramics by Kansas City Urban Potter members will be on display and available for purchase. Visitors can shop from a variety of styles and prices, meet the artists and enjoy viewing local handmade products.

The Holiday Sale is the kick-off event for KCUP.  The collective will be launching a Kickstarter campaign on November 7, 2014 and lasting throughout the Holiday Sale.  KCUP intends to raise money to support their mission, which includes organizing community and educational events geared to raise awareness about contemporary studio pottery in Kansas City, including an annual spring invitational. This yearly event will provide Kansas City audiences an opportunity to view fresh work from clay artists throughout the United States.

The Kansas City Urban Potters is a collective of professional studio artists who make functional pottery with the high standards of craftsmanship. The members of KCUP are: Chandra DeBuse, Paul Donnelly, Jana Evans, Rain Harris, Meredith Host, Erica Iman and Alex Watson.

Located in the heart of an already-strong clay community, the collective’s mission is to broaden the visibility of contemporary studio pottery to local and regional audiences through invitational exhibitions, public lectures and community-based events. By partnering with other local organizations in Kansas City, makers and creative entrepreneurs can accomplish far more than what would be individually possible.

HOURS: 11:00am - 9:00pm on Friday, 10:00am - 9:00pm on Saturday and 8:30am - 12:30pm on Sunday.

STOP the Cycle of Stress-Heal & Prevent "DIS-EASE", Thursdays, December 4 - December 11, 2014, 6:30pm - 8:30pm, Heritage Room.The human body is beautifully designed to respond to and handle stressful situations. It is equally and beautifully designed to return to a normal, restful state of ease once the situation has been removed. However, in our non-stop, busy American culture, the body is in constant response to situations such as work, finances, relationships, and chemical stressors, such as food, medication and toxins in the environment, which are “perceived” as threats by the body. This constant and chronic input causes our stress response to be mal-adaptive, which creates diseases and disorders such as Depression, Chronic Fatigue Syndrome, Fibromyalgia, Arthritis, Lupus, Digestive Disorders, Anxiety Disorders and Cancer! We have the ability to STOP this mal-adaptive response to stress and therefore, PREVENT DISEASE. By increasing our awareness in a four week class series we will not only learn how the body functions and responds to stressors, we will also learn how to create CHANGE and PREVENT DAMAGE from chronic stress patterns.

Lisa Adams, R.N., Certified Flowtrition Practitioner / Maya Abdominal Massage Practitioner Health and Wellness Educator

Classes will meet Thursdays, November 20 - December 11.

Class 1 – The stress response has a powerful biological effect on the body and our behaviors.
Class 2 – The circle of stress…physical, hormonal and physiologic changes in your body.
