LEWISTON – The YWCA of Central Maine will offer a pottery class for children ages 2 and up. Sessions of “Come Play in the Clay” will be offered at 10 a.m. and at noon Friday, Sept. 4. A follow-up session is planned for Saturday, Oct. 10, where children will glaze the pottery piece they created in the first session.

Children will learn basic hand-building and wheel-throwing techniques to create a unique piece of pottery. Pottery will be kiln-fired, then glazed in the Oct. 10 glazing class. Students will bring home a finished handmade pot.

Cost of the two-part class is $18 for YWCA members and $22 for nonmembers. It includes all materials and instruction. The classes will take place in the Vachon Meeting Room at the YWCA, 130 East Ave.

The classes will be taught by Lindsey Tomlinson-Peck. Tomlinson-Peck has been learning, working and teaching pottery for the last 13 years. She owns and runs the Mudroom, her own clay studio in Auburn. She has pottery lessons and workshops to students ages 2 and up.

Limited space is available. Children must be accompanied by an adult. Request either session upon registration by calling Kayt DeMerchant, director of marketing and hallmark programming at YWCA, at 795-4050 or via e-mail at [email protected]
