Tuesdays, September 17 – November 19
1:00pm – 4:00pm (10 Weeks)

In this course we will use the wheel and handbuilding skills we’ve already acquired to make pots that we will be proud to display and especially to use in our kitchens and at our breakfast and dinner tables. Over the past year, Hollis has concentrated in his Pocasset studio on a variety of teabowls – both wheelthrown and handbuilt with the kurinuki method. That concentration in his work will continue in his class demonstrations. But there will be more. Teabowls for tea and juice, mugs for coffee, pitchers for pancake syrup, teapots for Earl Grey. And Hollis is always willing to help with or demonstrate anything a student wants to see. Along the way, we will improve our clay skills as we make good, useful pots.

Refund policy:

Refunds will not be given within one week of the start of a class. Classes are not pro-rated, and there are no makeups for missed classes. A $25 processing fee is withheld from all refunds.

The Art Center reserves the right to cancel any class or workshop due to insufficient enrollment, in which case tuition will be fully refunded.

If Falmouth Public Schools are closed due to weather conditions, we will be closed and the missed classes will be rescheduled.




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.

Alexandria, VA, and established Hatchville Pottery in Falmouth, MA, in
