Throwing pots on the wheel helps us to find our calm center. This class will incorporate gentle yoga and mindfulness practices to support your clay work. Suitable for beginners or experienced potters. We use awareness to respond to the clay in a way that allows our own visions to unfold. The vessels you create will convey the richness of your own experience of making them, allowing others to benefit from your transformative practice.

Liz is an artist based in the Lehigh Valley in Pennsylvania. She has been working with ceramics since 1995, and has maintained a studio and exhibition practice since then. Her ceramic sculptures explore themes of memory and language by depicting miniature environments, objects, words, and images. She has been teaching ceramics at community arts centers since 2013, and began teaching ceramics at Northampton Community College in 2019. Her philosophy as a teacher centers around providing a structure that’s supportive and encouraging for building basic skills, while being flexible enough to facilitate each artists’ unique style and vision.
