Workshops 2018

Below is what I currently have booked for teaching this year, so get your playtime scheduled! There’s potential for another venue to be added, so you can sign up for my enewsletter to be notified.

I’m pretty excited to be heading to Pomona, CA to teach a two-day demonstration at The American Museum of Ceramic Art (AMOCA), April 14th & 15th.

In June, I’ll be heading to Gatlinburg, TN to teach a five-day hands-on workshop (my fourth!) at the Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts, June 11 – 15.

Then I’ll be heading to Canada to teach a three-day hands-on workshop over the Canada Day holiday weekend at the Rozynski Arts Center in Québec, June 30th – July 2nd.

In September, I’ll be close to home and doing my first workshop in years here in MA at the inimitable Harvard Ceramics Studio with friend and fellow potter Bryan Hopkins in Allston, Sept 15th & 16th.

All my workshops and most techniques are equally suitable for both throwers and hand-builders with basic skills required for hands-on gigs. Click the links above and contact the venues directly for pricing and availability. (Not all info will be available just yet, but you can let them know your interest and get added to their email list.)

If I’m not coming where you’d like me to be, please do pass along the Workshops page of my website to your favorite venue as that’s frequently how they come about. As always on that page, you can see the full list of where I’ve taught in the past (scroll to bottom), more info on what’s offered, as well as new venues as they’re booked. You can also sign up for my enewsletter to have updated events sent to your inbox. Hope to see you!

PS: If you just can’t make a workshop, my DVD on Surface deco is another option and available right here.
