TWO-DAY WORKSHOPS IN CAMBRIA:
I love my workshop groups! Whether your goal is to learn a new technique or just to get clay on your hands and have fun creating, this two-day workshop may be for you. Workshop size is limited and the sessions fill up fast.
This workshop is good for:
1. Beginners who want to learn more about clay.
2. Advanced potters who want to learn more about sgraffito and/or studio practices.
3. People who want to have a creative adventure.
4. Friends who want to have a fun experience together.
We'll be working with clay in its "green" state, before it's been fired. You'll make a small piece from scratch, as well as decorate other pieces in the "green" (unfired) stage.
I'll guide you step-by-step through the process of surface decoration on the pieces. After the workshop, I will fire them and ship them to you (or have for you to pick-up). Please note: Shipping is additional $15 to be paid at workshop.
Cost is $195 per person and includes everything - materials, firing, snacks on both days and lunch on second day.

"You are the best of teachers. You opened me to a new technique without insisting I do it your way. You made it easy to ask for advice and you were wonderful in your instruction as well as problem solving. I ultimately made a piece that I feel is my own but only with your instruction and guidance could I have done it.
