The 3rd Space on Main St. in Monterey to Host Series of Two Pottery Classes as Part of Robust Summer Workshop Series

The 3rd Space is offering the perfect opportunity to discover your skill and interest in pottery this Summer!


Taught by mother-daughter duo Heather Scott and Lorraine White, the workshop provides experience throwing on a wheel as well as hand built pottery, information about clay characteristics, and glazing options. Participants will produce completed works in both techniques. The materials cost includes up to 10 lb. of clay, use of molds, wheels,  tools, and a variety of glazing colors. The workshops will begin with demonstration and instruction on wheel thrown and hand built pottery on June 21-23, then reconvene July 12-14 for glazing techniques and completion of participants’ creations. This time lapse from participants building their pieces until glazing allows for drying and kiln time.


Scott graduated from Eastern Mennonite University; while there she took many courses at James Madison University with an emphasis on  ceramics. She continued with post graduate work at JMU around ceramic arts.  ​She owns and operates Lightning Bug Hollow Studios and continues to  work in a variety of media.
