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.
