Hello ClayArters! to follow is the short form of our Spring/Summer lineup
of workshops at Mudpie Potters Community Clay Center in Leverett, MA. Just
to let you know a little bit about Mudpie, we are a nonprofit dedicated to
arts education located in central MA near Amherst & Northampton. We are
housed in the Leverett Crafts & Arts building, home to 18 different artists
and organizations including painters, drum makers, metal workers, art
therapists, a screenprinter, knife maker, sculptors and of course potters.
Our studio's backyard opens to wooded areas with great hiking trails and
our atmosphere is relaxed. If you don't mind rustic accommodations, the
director's backyard is always open to overnight tenters for weekend
workshops. If you'd like to know more about any of these workshops or to
register, email me and I'll send you a full course listing plus
registration form.
Yours in mud, Donna
