Instructor - Chris Doiron

Chris Doiron holds a Diploma in Fine Craft: Ceramics, from the New Brunswick College of Craft & Design and is building his career as a ceramic artist, working in both stoneware and raku temperatures. Moving to rural New Brunswick ignited his deep-rooted appreciation of nature’s colors and textures, fueling his fervor for wood-firing, with its unique qualities and unpredictable results. Chris was awarded a creation grant from the New Brunswick Arts Board, to pursue his research in working with local river clays. He is an Instructor for the City of Fredericton’s edVentures program, and has recently begun offering pottery workshops at his home studio in Miramichi.
