agate bank thrown on the wheelMaster potter Rick Hamelin presents Spouting Off! Teapots from Around the World, a pottery demonstration, at the Holmes Public Library on Saturday, May 9, 11 a.m. Watch as these teapots take shape and hear the history of their form and function: the English "brown Betty", an Asian teapot made from one piece of clay, a Lebanese two-walled tea pot, and a unique, mythological-form tea pot. This presentation by the Pied Potter, Rick Hamelin, is supported by a grant from the Halifax Cultural Council, a local agency funded by the Massachusetts Cultural Council, a state agency.
The pottery demonstration will be followed by a light tea to close out our week-long Books in Bloom event and to recognize our library volunteers!
