Library hosts last pottery workshop of series

Jill Carter of Southern Pottery recently conducted the final of four scheduled workshops held at Franklin Memorial Library.

After a long haul of isolation from COVID-19, these workshops have been a vehicle to promote interaction in public places. The library’s vision was to offer the community a different medium of art to expand the realm of culture beyond canvas and paint, and with the conclusion of the pottery workshop series, this goal has been actualized. Members of the local public were delighted to participate in each workshop, according to library staffer Jessica Appleby.

During the last workshop, 20 participants were able to create and design a do-it-yourself welcome front porch sign.

The series of sessions were part of a Vibrant Communities Grant awarded to Franklin Memorial. Funding came specifically from the Georgia Arts Council, the National Endowment for the Arts, and the Mill Creek Foundation.
