Instructor: Michelle Cousineau 


Michelle is originally from Maine, has lived in various places around the state (including teaching in Lubec for a couple of years in the early 90s) and recently moved back to Maine after living in North Carolina for 20-some years. In North Carolina she taught adult education and studied pottery. She then worked professionally as a potter for many years, and also taught pottery classes out of her home studio. She’s been a gallery owner and sold her work in various art shows and galleries.

For the past few years, she’s focused on becoming a master gardener, working with community garden projects, and teaching classes on sustainable horticulture, agriculture, soil, and water. Now that Michelle is back in Maine and living near the CCLC, she is excited to roll up her sleeves, get back in the pottery studio, and offer her skills as a pottery teacher!
