Creating with Clay!
Come join us at LeMoyne for fun with clay in our ceramic studio! Artist Nancy Jefferson will start four 8-week adult classes beginning the week of September 14th, 2020. All techniques of hand-building and wheel throwing will be explored.
From functional to sculptural, the sky is the limit as to what you can create! Going outside the box is our forte. If there is something special you wish to make, Nancy will show you how!
The studio will be equipped with individual sanitizers and masks will be available for those who do not have their own. We will also be practicing social distancing while creating. All tools will be sanitized between classes, and 2 air purifiers will be in service. Please note that due to the COVID-19 virus, only 2 wheels will be in service each class.

ABOUT THE INSTRUCTOR
Born in Lexington, Kentucky, Nancy grew up riding bicycles, ice skating, and playing kick-the-can. She studied at the University of Kentucky between 1970 and 1975, collecting 120 credits in a diversity of subjects. Later, she refined her craft studying at Penland School of Crafts in 1979, 1981, and 1985 and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts in 1991.
Nancy moved to Islamorada in the Florida Keys in 1978 where she apprenticed under Lee and Dorothy Shank for two years before becoming the resident potter at Plantation Potters for 24 years. In 2004 she moved her studio to the forest in Wakulla County, Florida.
Nancy is currently the resident potter at LeMoyne Center for the Visual Arts in Tallahassee, Florida where she teaches, manages the ceramics studio, and creates her own work. She enjoys biking the local forest trails and kayaking the Gulf and area rivers.
Nancy’s nature-inspired ceramics are influenced by a childhood spent outdoors, the many skilled instructors she studied under, and the amazing environments in which she’s had the pleasure to live. Her work is often identified by her signature red dot.
