Description

Your child will get a step-by-step demonstration of how to throw on the pottery wheel! This small group setting will allow for independent wheel throwing and lots of one-on-one teaching time. Everyone will have the opportunity to explore Jamin's ten steps to throwing a pot. Participants will also learn about trimming, the firing process of clay, some basic vocabulary, and the proper storage. Each child will create a set of three functional bowls and one larger piece that are microwave and dishwasher safe. Pieces will be available for pick up after final firing. All materials and firing fees included. Kids ages 8-12 years old only. This class meets in the Pottery Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.

TRACI NOONE
Traci lived half of her younger life in a small, rural town at the geographic center of Massachusetts named for the redness of the soil.  She enjoyed digging in the dirt, riding her bike, reading books, and the beauty of the native mountain laurel.  Traci studied Fine Arts with a concentration in photography at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst, and as a graduate student at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago. Today, she is a practicing artist, educator, and naturalist.  She resides on Cape Cod where she has been making and learning from clay for the past fifteen years.  Traci exhibits locally, and usually sells her pots with the flowers that she grows at the farmers’ market.  She is an active member of the Cape Cod Potters and has also been the recipient of local cultural council grants from the Massachusetts Cultural Council.
