The seasoned instructors and artisans of Dew Claw Studios purvey pottery know-how to create practical pieces and ceramic artwork. Novice potters and mid-level clay shapers alike can team up for private lessons to start a new project or finesse a visionary work in progress, such as an extra-firm pillow or a pile of shards. Alternatively, the eight-week Wheel 1 pottery course guides amateur handlers in the basics of the pre-firing forming process. Students fashion cups, bowls, and rainproof hats using the wheel’s centripetal action before studying glazing technique. The course includes bisque and glaze firing for in-class items, so newborn treasures can withstand trips to the opera.

Dew Claw teacher and co-owner John Mitchell was featured in Jason Caminiti’s Pawtucket Rising, a film documenting the town’s cultural revitalization. The roomy studio offers artists plenty of space for working at its large wooden tables or regaining balance after standing on a pottery wheel.
