ASHEBORO – Get hands-on experience throwing pots and turning clay creations in the 5th Annual TeenZone Pottery Slam!, noon-2 p.m. Saturday, February 13, at the Asheboro Public Library.
All teens are invited to join local potters Brooke Avery, Joseph Sand and Dawn Tagawa, who will provide guidance as participants get to work.
Sponsored by the Friends of the Library, the Pottery Slam is free and supplies are provided.
The completed pieces will be fired and placed on display at the library for a few weeks, and then returned to their makers.
Avery teaches pottery at Randolph Community College and the Randolph Arts Guild. Her unique work can be found in shops and galleries in Asheboro and Greensboro.
Sand operates Joseph Sand Pottery in Randleman, and apprenticed with master potter Mark Hewitt.
Tagawa’s work, which can be purchased through Etsy, has been recognized in numerous area exhibitions and craft shows. She believes good pottery should have depth, character and flow.
The library is located at 201 Worth Street. For further information, call 318-6803.
