Pottery teacher Marilyn Dale offers classes in the village Warwick — Longtime Warwick pottery teacher Marilyn Dale has moved her studio to the Doc Fry Community Center. In a large, second-floor classroom Dale has set up six wheels and there’s plenty of space for students — from beginners who want to learn how to throw pots to experienced potters looking for a place to work. There’s room to learn, grow, share ideas and pick up new techniques. Pottery classes for adults and children allow each student to go at his or her own pace — to let creativity flow. “Working with clay is an amazing experience,” says Dale, who has been teaching pottery in Warwick and around the metropolitan area for 25 years. “Would you like to sip coffee from a mug you made? Eat cereal from your own bowl? Make your own gifts? It’s a fun way to connect naturally with the vessels we use every day.” The techniques of wheel throwing, hand building, underglazing and glazing are taught in small classes. Classes for adults are offered Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays. Classes for children are given Tuesdays and Wednesdays. A semester of classes typically runs for six to eight weeks. The studio is also open for birthday parties, Scouting events, school trips and for friends who want to try something together for an evening.
