What is unique about the Tuscarora Summer Pottery School?
the town of Tuscarora itself is quite uniqueestablished
in the early 1870s after the discovery
of large gold and silver deposits, it experienced
the typical boom and bust fate of most
old western mining towns.
In its glory days, Tuscarora's
population swelled to over
3000 seekers, and though its population had
dramatically declined by the turn of the century,
Tuscarora never truly became a ghost town,
as there has always been people living here.
The present population of
14 is mostly made up
of artists. Tuscarora is
a place where they have come
to concentrate on their work and live unencumbered
lives. We are in Tuscarora for these
very reasons. Our teaching approach is to share
our knowledge, our studios, and our life style
with studentsfor two weeks we get to share our
work, our meals, our ideas in intimate surroundings.
