Before becoming a full time potter, Melissa was a teacher for 7 years at an independent school in Victoria. She taught math, language arts, physical activity, Earth sciences, art, and nature exploration to pre-priamary and elementary aged children.

In her last year at the school she also worked part-time at a local pottery studio, teaching ceramics to adults and children. The year culminated in a clay hand-building workshop, at her school, to classes of children ages 6-14 years. The above photos show some of their fabulous creations!

If you're interested in having Melissa come to your school, Rec centre, or home please contact her for details through the Contact page. Her goal is to provide clay workshops at an accessible price to her community.
