MORE NO CRAP TALK: I loved my time at Greenwich House Pottery. The people were lovely, I was able to interact with many of the students and I learned so much. It was really rewarding to be able to perform all the small tasks that go into production. The job required some heavy lifting and could feel menial at times (i.e. scrubbing the clay mixer), but it was nice to see another side of the studio. I  would highly recommend the internship for anyone who loves ceramics and wants to learn more.
