CIY Instructor

Catherine Langreney

Throughout my corporate career, I craved creativity. Enjoying hobbies helped me de-stress and even gave energy. I found that creativity in quilting and pottery. Four years ago, when a local pottery studio opened near me, I was quick to join and realize a long dream of mine that is pottery. I enjoy translating my life experiences and my travels through my art.

With a lump of clay, I can turn an idea that pops into my head into something useful and beautiful. But what I love most about pottery is the decorating and sharing with other fellow potters through teaching. I teach wheel throwing, surface decoration and hand building.
