Rick entertained a mixed audience with facts, stories, pottery terms and demonstrations on the wheel and the time flew by! Even small children were enthralled, especially when he created the dragon. Very worthwhile cultural presentation.

It is often difficult to engage 5th and 6th graders but the kids really liked this demo! Even a 3 year old made a pot! People who came into the library for other reasons came in and stayed for Rick!

Laura Grant, Children’s Librarian

Mr. Hamelin was extremely informative and personable. We would like him to come again.

Rick captivated the audience. Children and adults both had a fantastic time learning about clay and pottery. He had a very good rapport with the children.
