I teach two ceramics classes at Camden County College Blackwood Campus in Blackwood, NJ just outside Philadelphia, PA. The next open classes are in the fall 2016 semester. Classes can be taken as an audit or for credit.
I first touched clay when I was in high school in Lancaster, PA. The potter's wheel allowed me to work with my hands in an incredibly direct way, and I liked the idea that my handmade pot could become a part of someone else's life. For two years, my high school art teacher, Dick Ressel, challenged me with questions and projects.
