Thursdays • 1:00 pm – 4:00 pm
September 20 – November 22
You’ve always admired handmade pottery, here’s your chance to make your own coffee mugs, cereal bowls, even teapots. Make a start at mastering the potter’s wheel or hand building with the tools you were born with. Great fun with fellow beginners and an instructor who remembers what it’s like to be new to clay.
Fee includes 25 pounds of clay, glaze and firing fee. A tool kit may be purchased for $14. Open studio time, which is scheduled several times throughout the week, is available at no extra charge.
Hollis Engley was raised on Martha’s Vineyard, educated at Cape Cod

years. He began making pots in 1990 at the Art League School in
Alexandria, VA, and established Hatchville Pottery in Falmouth, MA, in
2000. He joined Kimberly Jane Sheerin at The Barn Pottery in Pocasset

Hollis makes functional pots – “good pots for good food”. He is
influenced by Japanese, Korean and English country pottery. He fires
with both gas-fueled and wood-fueled kilns.
