What people are saying:

“I took the Intro to Ceramics- wheel/handbuilding class with Isaac Fouchard. I originally wanted to do a wheel class only but was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed the handbuilding aspect. Isaac is a very patient teacher with total beginners like me. He was attentive and helpful and always found a way to turn one of my pottery mistakes into a unique feature of my piece. The class always flew by. I’d definitely recommend the Gloucester Pottery School to anyone interested in expanding their hobbies.” Carley Spencer
