Handle with Care: Making Ceramic Handles with Amy Bourbon


  • $265.00  -  Non-Member
  • $245.00  -  Member


Six Thursdays, beginning May 20
from 12-2:30


Do you struggle with making handles for your pottery? Ceramic handles can be tricky, but don’t give up! In this class – which will focus on mugs, pitchers, and soup bowls – students will learn and practice several techniques so that they can find a method that works best for them. A little experience is needed, whether it’s in hand building or wheel throwing.

This class meets in the Pottery Studio on the lower level of the Education Wing.

All tools, materials, and firings are included.


The safety of our students, teachers, patrons, volunteers, and staff is our highest priority. A number of adjustments have been put in place to keep everyone safe for in-person classes at the Cultural Center. We are disinfecting public spaces frequently and have installed hand sanitizer stations throughout the building. To ensure the safety of those around you, please wear a mask, practice social distancing, and in other ways follow CDC guidelines while at the Cultural Center. Thank you!

Amy began to explore working with clay during her freshman year at Nauset Reginal High School. During the first semester of wheel throwing classes, she knew almost immediately it was something she wanted to pursue. After high school, she moved to Boston to attend Massachusetts College of Art and Design where she earned a Bachelors Degree in Fine Art Ceramics. After college, she moved back to Cape Cod to open a retail shop with her sister where they sold their artwork, including Amy’s pottery and pen and ink drawings. After making the decision to close their store, Amy continued to work in her home studio. Her inspirations come from the colors, forms, and textures of the woods and ocean.
