MAI holding pottery class on Nov. 7 at River Street Artisans

The Manistee Art Institute will hold a hands-on pottery demonstration from 2-4 p.m. on Nov. 7 at the River Street Artisans building at 345 River St.

The demonstration, featuring potters Sky Mage and Jeanne Butterfield, will demonstrate slab, coil and pinch pot pottery methods. Videos will also be shown demonstrating wheel-throwing techniques.

“Sky Mage and Jeanne Butterfield will be on hand to talk about their own work, and to demonstrate many different methods of hand-building pots,” a news release from the MAI indicated. “You can join them in working with a lump of clay, and surprising yourself with what you can make from it!”

While the facility doesn’t have the capability to fire any finished pieces, participants are welcome to take their pot home to dry.

For more information, contact the MAI by phone at (231) 723-2682 or by email at manisteeartinstitute@gmail.com.
