The Librarian and the Saturday Evening Girls Molding Success One Pot at a Time
Organization: Hubbard Library
The world and pottery molded by Edith Brown and Edith Guerre left a legacy created at the Paul Revere Pottery in Boston at the turn of the 20th century. You will experience the studio of the SEG (Saturday Evening Girls) and the Paul Revere Pottery with this illustrated discussion of individuals and demonstration of the materials, techniques and products.
We will passing from person to person a freshly made pot from the potter’s wheel and the chance to feel a dry and wet pot as it rotates on the wheel. You will also make a pinch pot (cup made from a ball of clay by pinching the clay with the thumb and finger) and the unfired piece goes home with you.
