Meet our Apprentices
Gabby starting attending MCW during our children's summer camps in 2015. She then attended the high school after-school program where her love for the arts flourished. She has then ran her own pottery programs for the community to give back. 

She currently is a junior Communication Design major at Kutztown University. She is back for the summer and is back in our studio, as a web designer and an apprentice. 

At Moscow Clayworks, we've initiated a dynamic mentorship program aimed at empowering aspiring female artists. Our apprentices actively engage in various studio tasks, from guiding newcomers in clay techniques to facilitating discussions on artistic expression. 

Through hands-on mentorship, participants gain invaluable insights into both the technical and creative aspects of pottery. This supportive environment fosters a sense of community while nurturing individual growth and confidence in our budding artists.

Emily started attending Moscow Clayworks in the summer of 2014 after graduating from Keystone College with a degree in Visual Art. She has been utilizing our space for the past 10 years to create artworks, explore various techniques and prepare work for craft shows in the Northeast PA area, all while gaining invaluable knowledge and lifelong friendships through the supportive creative community fostered at Moscow Clayworks.

She currently runs a wedding photography business, while working towards gaining more insight to the technical aspects of running a community pottery studio through the mentor program at Moscow Clayworks. With the experience and skills gained, she hopes to open her own studio in the Scranton, PA area to grow her pottery business and to expand resources to other ceramic artists.
Anastasia has been in our studio since our winter 2023. She has traveled the world, practicing her spirituality as a Psychic-Medium. She is driven by her intense curiosity and drive to understand, explore, and deeply feel and weave in dance with spirit

She is back in the studio as an apprentice, building and getting creative with clay.
