At HALLOWELL CLAY WORKS we teach a variety of classes from sensorimotor experiences for pre-k to kids, teens and adult clay instruction.  We work to meet students exactly where they are and create a safe environment for learning whether you are a beginner or pursuing a career in clay. The studio environment promotes the development of fine craft skills and community. 
We offer 8 week classes for adults (14 and older), 4 week kids classes, introductory workshops on wheel throwing and special hand-built (non-wheel)projects, we do parties, private lessons, tours and outreach. Contact us to discuss your needs. We also work with sensori-motor repair and healing using a technique called the Clay Field.  Check here for the latest classes
CLAY FIELD and HEALING- Clay work utilizes a variety of important hand movements which have been proven to be linked with healthy brain development for all ages. Understanding and following haptic perception (touch sense) one can unlock childhood traumas and PTSD by creating new neural pathways.  Clay has the power to heal. transform, and educate.  Ask about a private CLAY FIELD session. We’ll work with your therapist or psychologist to bring you a bottom-up (non-talk) approach to healing.

  1. Way to go,Malley!!! I am a potter at heart!!! It’s been a long time since i sat at a wheel. I do envy you!!! Great work!!

  2. Hi Malley,

    LOVE your website. When I finally have some free time, I just promised myself to take a pottery course. And, of course, it will be with you.

    Hope to see you this summer at the Wav!

  3. Hi Malley, My daughter,Sandy, sent you an invitation to my husband’s 80th birthday. I am your dad’s oldest sister. Your dad had three brothers: Robert (Bob) Weber, Bernard Weber (deceased) and Thomas Weber who lives in Conneticut.
    He also has another sister, Dorothea Dougherty, (deceased). So your dad was one of six siblings. His mom who was your grandmother passed away in 1990. Her name was – Margaret Agnes Weber. Her husband, Robert, was my stepfather.
    My biological father was Walter Powers. I never met him. My mother lft him when my sister and I were very young. Your dad was my favorite brother. He was a good, kindhearted and sweetest person. He was very even-tempered, not like my brother, Bobby, who had a short fuse. Also, he picked a wonderful person to be his wife – your mom. This is just a short bio on our family. If you have any questions just e-mail me. Love, Aunt Peg

    1. Aunt Peg!!! How great that Sandy reached out to my Mom! I’ve been really blown away with all the new information and I really look forward to re-meeting as many of you as I can. I remember bits and pieces. I’ll email you because I have a million questions! This is really wonderful.

  4. Glad to see other people digging their own clay. I would like to ask you a few questions, particularly about the program at Goddard. Would you mind if I called to speak with you about that sometime?
    Keep on digging, -Willi

  5. You are something else! Do you remember me saying that I would love to have you for my daughter, but your Mom and Dad got in the way. So I will settle for friendship, even though it has been awhile since we talked. You never fail to amaze me and your pottery is as much fun as always. Your whimsical approach is just what we are looking for. Lar & I are adding an additional product to our Oyster Shucker website, and we would like to talk to you about your pottery. Let me know if you are interested. OK?
    Love, Sherry
