Scheduling a Workshop

Test Tiles

CALL ME if you would like a workshop in your area, I am sure that we can get something together. Even if you are a small local studio with beginning/intermediate potters or sculptors, they are my favorites!! 828-467-5020

If you are interested in a cone 6 glaze workshop and it is within 10 -12 hours driving from Asheville, NC, then I can bring 2500 test tiles and it is very easy to do. We only need a some table, chairs and a room that holds 20 – 35 people and I will explain glazes, firing, testing, safety, adjusting glazes, etc. in a relaxed atmosphere of fun and learning. If you are not within that range, I can always fly to your studio and we can discuss what you need.

But if you want a cone 6 hands on testing workshop then we do need a ceramic studio, but it doesn’t have to be sophisticated. I have done it in many venues that are just normal potters studios!

I also do hands on weekend glazing and firing workshop on Oil Spot, Copper Red, Shino, Mid-Range Crystalline glazes. I also do low fire sculpture workshops.

I have done over 200 workshops across the US as well as Canada and Europe.

It is no risk to you or your center because if we don’t fill it 30 days out we just cancel or postpone it and no one loses money.  Let me know and we will see if we can work it out at your studio. It will be memorable and FUN!!
