Kiln Unload April 2021

food and pottery, New work, sale, shop local, shop small, westwood artists

Opening my kiln in April is all about spring and how the potter creates items to bring beauty to the home both indoors and out. Spring is about flowers and bright colors, berries and birds.. It’s about prepping for Mother’s Day gift giving and sales. Here is a look at some of my favorite pieces from this month’s kiln opening…

If you are interested in purchasing my pottery, available items, pricing and how to purchase are attached to each of my flickr listings. Click here for more info.

Happy Holidays 2020

kids, shop local, shop small, teaching

I’ve just completed an update on my website with class updates and how to purchase my pottery until December 31, 2020. I’ve been stopping in at the galleries and shops that support me and filling in with new pieces for the final days of in-store shopping. The snow is falling and spring ideas are starting to pop into my head. I’m looking forward to creating new work and completing some special orders in 2021. Be Well and Stay Safe.

Thank you to Medfield TV for creating this great video for the Virtual Holiday Stroll in Medfield.

Lisa WB Walker Classes and Workshops ~ Fall 2020

As I watch the cities and towns turn from green to yellow, I’m reminded that patience is important. I miss being in the classroom; I miss the closeness that comes from sitting opposite a student and pulling a pot up together; I miss the close interaction with a child who is frustrated and needs a helping hand; I miss so much that this pandemic has forced us to press pause on.

Teaching Pottery to Adults pre-COVID

The upside of pressing pause and rethinking how to teach has provided new opportunities for personal growth and adding technical tools to my teaching regime. This can only be a good thing. Here are some of the teaching opportunities available to students of all ages.

Drawing lessons on zoom – one to one, or groups. Single classes or multiple. All ages welcome. Email me to set something up.

6 and 8 week hand building classes at Mother Brook Arts on zoom starting in September. A monthly Q & A on Monday mornings and Thursday evenings. Sign up today!

Outdoor Art 4 Sunday mornings starting September 12 at the Westwood Recreation Department. Registration is open!

Try out “Pottery from home”, a virtual class held on Zoom on Friday afternoons this fall through the Westwood Recreation Department. Registration is open!

Newton Community Education Pottery classes will be virtual for grades 1-5 this fall. “Pottery at Home” will be offered Mondays, Wednesdays & Thursdays for 14 week sessions Sept-December. Sign up here!

Keep Art in your life. Clay is any form is clay!

Clay and Chardonnay PRE COVID – Here’s to getting back to that as soon as it’s safe!

Virtual Pottery Tour

Uncategorized
Enjoy a visit and talk about my summer collection and Barbados inspired pottery.

When you can’t host a sale for customers, the next best thing is a private video tour of new work. I set up a sale on my back porch and using my phone, give a talk (make sure the volume is on and up!) about my new summer collection and spring Barbados Collection. As all the sales I planned for were canceled, it has been since February when I have had the opportunity to share my vision for the work that I am creating. All pieces are for sale and can be purchased directly from me. I provide contactless buying options, curbside pick up, delivery and shipping. Please email me at lisawbwalker@gmail.com to discuss any of the work.

Hand building On Line Classes for Adult Students

Creating bowls with clay coils. Potters have been using this technique for hundreds of years in all cultures!

Last week marked the start of virtual hand building classes on Zoom. Oh how I have missed interacting with students and teaching clay to adults! In week one of a two part workshop, we worked on a coil pot; part two will feature hand built fruit to sit in the bowl. In this class, students can use real clay and have been given the opportunity to have it fired. All this is happening at Mother Brook Arts in Dedham. A new group of classes will be ready for sign ups soon. Click here for more information on Mother Brook Arts ceramics program. I will be offering one, two and three day workshops.

There is also an option for private or small group clay lessons virtually with any age – kids, teen, adult – just ask and I’ll set something up!
