Ice Cream Social at Workhouse

Fundraiser for ceramics program will help kiln yard roof project.

The Workhouse Arts Center held its fifth annual Ice Cream Social Fundraiser last Saturday, July 13, at the former Lorton Prison. For $15, patrons could purchase an original, handmade ceramic bowl and fill it with ice cream and various toppings. The afternoon included music by the Backyard Blues Band and pony rides from Tamarack Stables.

“The fundraiser helps to support exhibits, helps to support visiting artists, and workshops and outreach activities with the schools,” said Dale Marhanka, ceramics program director. The ceramics program has 95 students in its classes.
