The perfect class for anyone wanting to learn basic wheel throwing, or advance their knowledge further.  Focus will be on the bowl, the mug and the vase. 

Gretchen is an accomplished ceramicist from the Tacoma, WA area where she created, taught and sold art for nearly 40 years.  She has a bachelor of arts degree in studio art with a ceramic arts focus and a Master of Arts in Teaching, both from the University of Puget Sound.

“My personal clay work has been focused on the vessel form utilizing a variety of surface decoration techniques including Sgrafitto, raku, saggar and carved designs. My teaching has been an integral part of my creative life as I taught both as a high school art teacher and in my own studio and gallery business in Tacoma.”

“Being new to the Island life I’m loving being in Friday Harbor. I am very happy to be able to share my joy of the creative process with our community and to be part of Alchemy Art Center.”
