Mixed Level Class.
These community classes are targeted toward creating both aesthetic and functional work, and although we learn in a focused manner, we also have fun. Beginners start with pinch, coil and slab pots, then progress to the wheel. After a few classes, individuals are encouraged to bring ideas and dreams to class, and lessons become more individualized. Students will experience a variety of construction, decorating and glazing techniques. Open studio hours are provided for individualized practice outside of class. Serious and advanced students are welcome and will also feel challenged at their own level.
About the Instructor:
Michelle is originally from Maine, has lived in various places around the state (including teaching in Lubec for a couple of years in the early 90s) and recently moved back to Maine after living in North Carolina for 20-some years. In North Carolina she taught adult education and studied pottery. She then worked professionally as a potter for many years, and also taught pottery classes out of her home studio. She’s been a gallery owner and sold her work in various art shows and galleries.
Now that Michelle is back in Maine and living near Cobscook Institute, she is excited to roll up her sleeves, get back in the pottery studio, and offer her skills as a pottery teacher!
