Personal Enrichment

Handbuilt Pocket Planter


with Amanda Williams, Sanford Community Adult Education

Calendar Next available session starts Jul 9, 2020 at 6 pm, runs for 1 week

We know you miss pottery classes!  We miss you too.  We have a pretty neat solution to social distancing for pottery.  As you know, the studio is small and it would be virtually impossible to keep everyone at a safe distance.  So, what will be happening is that Amanda will be in the studio, teaching and creating the project described over Zoom.  Upon registration, students will stop in at the studio and pick up a clay kit for the class.  Gather these homemade "tools" for your live, online session with Amanda:  a butter knife, a rule or straight edge, a fork or comb, an old plastic credit card or gift card, a dish of water, newspaper, and a plastic bag to cover the finished piece while drying.  Optional tools: a sponge, a chopstick, a paint brush, and interesting objects with textures you can press into the clay to add visual elements.  Once the session is complete, and you're satisfied with your project, you'll bring it back to the studio, and we will get it in the next available kiln firing.  And we'll let you know when it's ready for pick up!

It's summer!  Get your hands dirty with clay (and later some garden soil) and make an amazing one-of-a-kind vetical pocket planter to hang on your wall, front door, or somewhere in your garden!  Includes $12 material fee for clay and firing fee.

Virtual Book Nook


with Shila Cook, Gorham Adult Education

Calendar Jul 9, 2020 at 6:30 pm

Come join me, Shila Cook, for Gorham Adult Education’s first ever virtual book club! This nine week book club will read three texts and meet four times. The first time we ‘meet’ we will be getting to know each other, discussing our opinions of the texts on first glance, and going over how the other three meetings will go. What better way to enjoy the kind of easy connection that only books can create, then from the virtual comfort of our own homes? The cost of the course includes the first text (making sure that each of us has the same copy, making it easier to discuss), and will be shipped to you. So the big question, what are we going to be reading? That is up to the club. Once you register you will receive an email from me asking you to pick your top 5 choices, and we will be reading the three that get the most votes! 

When:  1st meeting: Thursday July 9nd;  2nd meeting: Thursday July 23; 3rd meeting: Thursday August 13;  4th meeting: Thursday September 3


Materials Needed: Computer, tablet, or phone with wifi access.
