Mt. Hood to host craft sale, ceramics show next month

Mt. Hood Community College will host two events designed to warm the hearts of crafts and ceramics lovers next month.

‘Scrooge Lives’

The college will host its 43rd annual “Scrooge Lives” holiday craft sale from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday, Dec. 4, and from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 5, in the Student Union.

Among the nearly 50 vendors are two octogenarians — one who creates hand-turned bowls and the other who makes birdhouses and squirrel feeders. Vendors offer a variety of wares, including “green” products, personalized children’s books, musical instruments and original artwork.

Mt. Hood graduate Shawn Schlogel will play holiday tunes on the piano noon to 1 p.m. both days. Because of the additional vendors this year, the college is able to offer students 200 $5 discount coupons each day.

Meanwhile, the college’s Visual Arts Gallery will host the annual Ceramics Club Holiday Sale from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Tuesday-Thursday, Dec. 4-6. The sale features a wide variety of high-quality ceramics made by students and alumni.

Normal gallery hours are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday. The gallery is closed weekends and holidays.
