Thursdays, 1 pm – 4 pm
June 28 – August 30
Hollis has been making useful pots for more than 25 years. He will help YOU use the skills you bring to the class to make better bowls, mugs, plates, platters, teabowls, and pitchers. In addition, you will spend time in class with the work of many wonderful potters from the collection of Hollis and his partner Kimberly Sheerin. We will talk about and learn from some of the best. Intermediate to advanced students welcome.
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
