Poetry, Pottery, & Paper

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

In this collaboration between Writers & Books and the Genesee Center for the Arts and Education, 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 Genesee Center for the Arts (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.
