Your child will get a step-by-step demonstration of how to throw on the pottery wheel! This small group setting will allow for independent wheel throwing and lots of one-on-one teaching time. Everyone will have the opportunity to explore Jamin’s ten steps to throwing a pot. Participants will also learn about trimming, the firing process of clay, some basic vocabulary, and the proper storage. Each child will create a set of three functional bowls and one larger piece that are microwave and dishwasher safe. Pieces will be available for pick up after final firing. All materials and firing fees included. Kids ages 8-12 years old. This class meets in the Pottery Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.

Materials needed for this class are provided.

Jamin was introduced to clay at a young age by her late grandfather Harry Holl and other family members at Scargo Pottery and Art Gallery. She moved to Vermont after high school to attend Johnson State College where she earned a bachelor’s degree in Art Education. Shortly after, she became an Art Educator at Dennis-Yarmouth Regional High School. During her time there she instructed Intro to Ceramics, Advanced Ceramics, and Sculpture classes. Jamin left D-Y after seven years when her twin girls were born and opened The Clay Cup in Osterville, MA. As owner operator she conducted small instructional throwing and hand-building classes, paint your own pottery workshops, and private lessons. Jamin has also taught clay enrichment classes at the West Villages Elementary School in Marstons Mills, MA. Most recently, she has returned to Scargo Pottery where she is working alongside accomplished potters and developing her skills more every day. Jamin’s passions include the art of throwing on the wheel, as well as slab work, carving, and lately she has been spending time making ceramic jewelry, experimenting with gold luster, and playing with beautiful glazes. She is proud to be back at Scargo Pottery helping to keep Harry Holl’s legacy alive.
