Useful Knowledge 101: Wild Clay with Nate Willever
The Clay Studio’s Resident Artist, Nate Willever, will demonstrate the basics of making forms on the pottery wheel and show how he works with local wild clay dug up in Perryville, Maryland. Participants will have a chance to work with the wild clay and make a tile that will be glaze fired.
At the American Philosophical Society Museum, visitors will see exhibitions drawn from the Society’s renowned collections that trace American history and science from the Founding Fathers to the digital age.
