Classes and Workshops

Sasha is a practicing ceramic artist, mother of two, and has been teaching ceramics since 1991.  She has been teaching in her home since April and has previously taught at: The DeCordova Museum, Mudflat Ceramics Studio, The Danforth Museum in Framingham, SummerPlace Camp in West Hartford, JCC of West Hartford, Fuller Museum of Art in Brockton, Genesis at Brandeis University, Boston University, The Boston Museum School of Fine Arts, and University of Massachusetts at Dartmouth.

Children’s Pottery

Afternoon classes are for children 4 to 6 years old. Children learn hand-building techniques such as coiling, slab building, pinch pots, as well as carving, decorating, and glazing techniques.  Classes are small enough that individual interests can be explored. 

Adult Pottery

An evening class for adults explores hand-building as well as throwing techniques. Classes will teach clay and glaze techniques as well as allow for personal interests and expression throughout. 

Judaica Workshops

Sasha teaches workshops throughout the year that coincide with the Jewish holidays.  For younger children, the workshop invites parent and child to work together collaboratively.  Basic 2-hour workshops work well for families, allowing each member to make one ceramic piece that is simple, functional, and beautiful. More advanced offerings allow participants (age 8 and above) to make more than one piece and learn special techniques; these can be designed in 3-4 hour segments.

Judaica Workshops include:

  • Menorah Making Workshop.
  • Seder-Plate Workshop
  • Kiddush Cup Workshop
  • Challah Plate Workshop
  • Shabbat Candle-Holders Workshop
