This week long clay camp is designed for students who are new to the wheel AS WELL AS those who have prior experience. New students will learn the basics of throwing, centering, & making pots on the pottery wheel. Students with more experience will continue to explore form, combining pieces to expand their repertoire, and explore the possibilities of clay’s limits! There is space for all levels. Only requirement is enthusiasm and eagerness to learn how to create your own unique pieces on the pottery wheel. You’ll love it!
All materials will be provided. You might want to bring a snack and dress to be messy.
Kim Sheerin graduated in 1996 from the University of New Hampshire with a degree in Studio Arts with a focus in ceramics. She has lived and made pottery in Pocasset on Cape Cod for the past 20 years at The Barn Pottery on Barlow’s Landing Road. Kim makes functional pots – plates, mugs, cups, bowls, and teapots – what she calls “art for every day.” Her work is highly decorated with slip trailing, stamping and sgraffito. She is influenced by the natural world of Cape Cod and by Islamic and East Indian art. She has traveled to India to investigate human trafficking there and to see how young women are being rehabilitated from slavery. Her “pots with a purpose” educate the viewer on that issue.
