NEWPORT — The MAC Center for the Arts recently worked with Harriet Hall from the Vermont Association for the Blind and Visually Impaired to conduct a pottery class for thirteen of its members.
Even though some of the members are completely blind and many have diminished sight unable to actually see their work, the participants enjoyed using their hands and working with the clay.
Each member made two pieces, a pinch pot and a coiled pot.
Once glazed and fired, the artwork will be returned to the participants.
Diana Poulin, the owner of Muddy Waters Studio in Newport, organized the event, donated all the supplies, and conducted the class.
Poulin’s pottery is on display at the MAC Center gallery as well.Are you on Instagram? Cool. So are we. CLICK HERE to follow us for a behind the scenes look at Newport Dispatch.
