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