Poetry, Pottery, & Paper (CLASS FULL)

Instructor(s): M.J. Iuppa Kate Whorton Ryana Lawson
Location: WAB – 740 University Ave.


In this collaboration between Writers & Books and the Flower City Arts Center, you’ll have a unique opportunity to merge visual arts with creative writing. You will use a press mold to create a ceramic book, write pottery-inspired poems, interview real artists, make paper, and use a letterpress to print the words you have written. This workshop will be a real hands-on experience taught by professional artists and writers at both the Flower City Arts Center (on Monroe Ave in the old fire station) and at Writers & Books (on University Ave in the old police station)! On Friday, there will be an art show and poetry reading for your friends and families.


If you would like to make a request for an accommodation, please email us at at least 10 days prior to the event.
