For more information email Jenny Swanson or call the Davidson Ceramics Studio (802.649.2447) during studio hours.
At the Davidson Ceramics Studio we encourage all skill levels to work in clay, a timeless and enjoyable medium. Hand building, "throwing" on the potters' wheel, glazing and firing are all done on site. The studio is equipped with potter's wheels, slab roller, extruder, glazes and electric and gas kilns. We use high temperature reduction fired glazes that are beautiful and safe for tableware or sculpture. Come down to the wonderful off-campus site, see what you can make, and learn more! The Studio is located across the Ledyard Bridge on the Norwich side of the river. No advance sign up is required, you may sign up on your first visit.

HAND BUILDING AND POTTER'S WHEEL INSTRUCTION
Available anytime during our open hours until February 18th. After that date glazing only through February 27th. We recommend coming in and starting at the beginning of the term. Ceramics projects typically require at least three weeks to complete so please plan in advance! We advise arriving at the studio before 4 pm as work in clay takes time. Wheel work requires multiple visits (at least 3) to the studio.
