MAC Cen­ter for the Arts Col­lab­o­rates with the Ver­mont As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind and Vis­ually Im­paired

Stanstead Journal - - NEWS BRIEFS - New­port, VT

Re­cently, the MAC Cen­ter for the Arts worked with Har­riet Hall from the Ver­mont As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind and Vis­ually Im­paired to con­duct a pot­tery class for thir­teen of its mem­bers. Even though some of the mem­bers are com­pletely blind and many have di­min­ished sight un­able to ac­tu­ally see their work, the par­tic­i­pants en­joyed us­ing their hands and work­ing with the clay. Each mem­ber made two pieces, a pinch pot and a coiled pot which will be glazed and once fired, ready to be re­turned to them. A spe­cial thank you goes to Diana Poulin who or­ga­nized the event, do­nated all the sup­plies and con­ducted the class.

Stand­ing, MAC Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mit­tee Mem­ber, Diana Poulin in­structs mem­bers of the As­so­ci­a­tion for the Blind and Vis­ually Im­paired on the tech­niques of pot­tery making. Seated (l to r): Har­riet Hall, John Hall, Neil Young, Jim McIn­tyre, Kitty McIn­tyre, (stand­ing) MAC Ed­u­ca­tion Com­mit­tee mem­ber, Bon­nie Nash, Paula Fitzger­ald, Alain V.
