A free community day in honor of National Gun Violence Survivors Week.
Create, connect, and shape symbols of peace with clay.
Katie loves getting her hands in clay, and loves Artshack’s mission of making clay more accessible to all. As a ceramicist, she pays particular attention to the ways that working with clay is enlivening, healing, and full of lessons. She can’t get over this medium that is both so grounding, and expansive. Katie enjoys teaching people of all ages with clay, both on the pottery wheel and handbuilding, and thinks that a combo of the two makes really cool pieces. She finds inspiration in books, conversation, nature, the art of others, and by letting her own hands guide the way. If you see a small animal running around the studio or curled up in some clay, it’s her cat Eloise!
