Scenes from teaching Adult pottery at Potters Place. I’ve been lucky to have had two groups of fantastic students this past session. Here is a glimpse at some of the amazing work they have created both on the potters wheel and by hand.
I’m excited to offer instruction to adult students this spring at Potters Place, my cooperative studio located in Walpole, Massachusetts. Details here.
Starting on Monday, May 2nd from 9am – 12pm, I will offer a pottery class for adult students of all levels. This class is 6 weeks with a maximum class size of 6 students. Students will explore clay in both handbuilding and wheel throwing projects – beginning with clay and ending with a fully functional piece of ceramics. The possibilities are limitless! Click here for details and how to sign up.
Further into the month of May, I will offer a 4 week class with a focus on “The Mug”. This class will take place on Tuesday mornings from 9:30am – 12:30pm beginning May 17th. This class is for intermediate students (can center and pull a cylinder most of the time). Class size will not exceed 6 students. More details here.
If you are looking for instruction and these opportunities do not fit with your schedule, click over to my website where I list additional options for students of all ages, including an option for a private lesson.
Tree branches, pine cones, stamps and colored slip – all materials used in my Winter Scenes Clay Workshop that took place at Dedham Community House last night. In a collaboration between Dedham Square Artist Guild and DCH, artist members host classes and share their skills with Dedham residents. My class was action packed: painting, rolling, stamping and throwing the clay! to manipulate the surface. Students enjoyed the process and created a beautiful one of a kind functional piece … more pictures in part two…
Sign up Today for my Winter Scenes with Clay Workshop taking place on Thursday, February 28th from 6:30-8PM at the Dedham Community House.
Explore surface decoration in clay using textures and stamps with hand drawn elements using colored slip. Students will work with a slab of high fire clay to create images, their favorite can be molded into a functional piece. I will finish the pieces with a clear glaze and have them available for pick-up at the Dedham Square Artists Guild. Ages 18 and up.
This photo detail is an example of what students will work on. I created this dish with real shells, sea~glass as stamp, and hand drawn fish. In the winter scenes workshop, stamps will reflect the season.
