Kids’ Camp and After School Instructors

Basak Comert has been teaching at Full-Circle Pottery since shortly before the pandemic began.  Her after school clay kids and teens classes have been a big hit for young potters during this difficult year, giving them a safe environment to make friends and express their creativity.  She will be instructing the 2021 Clay Kids Summer Camps.
