Chelsi Hanley grew up in Lowell Massachusetts, currently a city with a vastly growing art community. Chelsi attended Lowell High School from 2004- 2008, where she grew a fast connection and love for ceramics. She carried this love to college where she pursued a degree in Fine Arts. Chelsi attended the University of Massachusetts in Lowell from 2008 to 2013. Here she primarily concentrated in dark room photography, sculpture, and ceramics. Part of the reason she acquired the liking for these three mediums is the hands on connection she can make with the material. Chelsi was the art teacher at the Boys & Girls Club of Greater Lowell where she helped youth gain inspiration for their art and life; between 2011 and 2014. Chelsi was the manager of the Ceramic Studio, Indigo Fire, in Belmont, Massachusetts. Chelsi continued her education after college at MudFlat in Somerville, Massachusetts, where she took classes and an independent study. Currently she is growing her pottery collection and is the owner of The Pottery Mill, located inside Lowell Makes.
