A few questions to Bobbie:
What made you start teaching?
I started teaching wheel throwing because I wanted the students to see how fun it was to move the clay.
What do you get out of teaching?
There's an expression that takes place in the class room when people catch on to what they are being told and run with it. It is inspiring to watch students discover something new and find a connection.
Tell me something people would be surprised to find out about you.
Something people would probably be shocked to learn about me is that I do feminist art.
