Doris Hackworth has been teaching pottery classes at the Bay School since 2014. Her next class, Beginner Wheel Throwing, is on Saturday, Jan 28; Feb 4, 11, & 18 from 1pm - 4pm. Register early to secure your spot!
Doris Hackworth discovered the joy of wheel thrown pottery in 1981 through community college ceramics classes in CA. Nearly 30 years later in 2009, she took to the wheel again and has been taking classes ever since at the Bay School, the Visual Arts Center in Richmond, Nan Rothwell Pottery in Charlottesville, The Cultural Arts Center in Glen Allen, and the John C. Campbell Folk Art School in NC. Doris’ emphasis is on form and function. She loves making pots that have a job.
A few questions to Doris:
What made you start teaching?
I have always been a teacher in my heart.
What do you get out of teaching?
I take huge satisfaction in promoting the joy of handmade pottery and being a part of adults finding a creative outlet they enjoy.
Tell me something people would be surprised to find out about you.
You might be surprised to know that I taught community college biology for a while and also worked for a language school teaching English to German speakers.
