The folks who lead you through the mud:
 Krista Cameron Amaranth Stoneware Mud Pack

Krista Cameron

Krista has been teaching in the Brockville area for over 10 years in her home studio and for Developmental Services of Leeds and Grenville.

Her first love is wheel throwing, but she doesn’t turn her nose up at a good hand-building session and it's versatility. During classes with Krista, it is important to laugh and have fun but most importantly it's teaching you how to create a piece that you will be proud to show off!

Linda Wolfram Fraser Creating a mold for slip casting

Linda Wolfram-Fraser

Linda W.F. loves to create. Using nature as her inspiration, she plays with mud in her Garden Studio.

Creating everything from utilitarian pieces like mugs, trays and bowls, to sculpture and whimsical non-functional pieces. Linda is fascinated with all things pottery. From the creation of different shapes and sizes, to the chemical composition of glazes and the variety of temperatures it can be fired to. She's hooked on the challenge!

Bringing smiles to faces and joy to the soul, her whimsical pieces can brighten dull days and lift heavy hearts.
