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.

The program tied perfectly to our focus on Colonial and Revolutionary War era society. Students enjoyed the program, they liked learning about life as an apprentice potter and about making pottery. We hope to have The Potter Hamelin back next year!
