Find a Class
Dan Paret has been a maker for more than thirty years and a teacher for 15 of those years. In addition to his time at the Eliot School, he also teaches woodworking at Cambridge Center for Adult Education.
“I find satisfaction in making functional objects people will use or encounter daily. I hope that people who own my pieces will connect with me through the objects, and experience with me the intimacy of simple, useful things. In my classes I employ equal measures of seriousness and levity to connect with people who are interested in making objects, manipulating materials and exploring the work. Teaching informs my work, which informs my teaching.”
