Title: Ceramics: “Weekly Wheel Workshop”

This class is also a good refresher if it has been a while since you’ve used a potter’s wheel. Beginners are also welcome.

Paul studied ceramics under Tom Marsh at the University of Louisville and was a co-founder of the Tennessee Valley Ceramic Arts Guild (TVCAG). He has demonstrated pottery-making at the Burritt Museum Folklife Festival for several years. He has also exhibited his work at Lowe Mill in Huntsville and in Atlanta, GA. You may see examples of Paul’s work on his website, Nascent Pottery.
