About the Artist

Amanda Pellerin has been the co-potter at Islesford Pottery for the past two summers, and in '96 & '97. Her work features bold colors, graphic images and inspiration from the layers of moss and lichen found along the rocky shore. Amanda will be sharing her love of texture and textiles with an offering of machine and hand rug-tufting workshops in July and August, as well as open studio hours in August. A selection of her textiles and knotted jewelry will be available throughout the summer in the Chandlery. She will offer the community the opportunity to collaborate on a piece that will be available at the Islesford Boatworks launch fundraiser.
