In-person Workshops

If you can’t attend an in-person workshop, check out my Surface Deco video AND Online Workshops!

You can read my Ceramics Monthly Workshop Honorarium & Logistics article here.

If there is a venue where you would like to see me teach, please pass along this page, that’s frequently how they come about! Contact me if you would like to host a workshop, and I will forward my info on scheduling & pricing. Workshops can be customized for any number of days at any venue (art center, pottery studio, guild, university, or college). Below is the full list of where I’ve taught.

Workshops can be hands-on or lecture/ demonstration only and typically include:

  • Slide presentation of my work (past & current) plus influences
  • Demonstrations of various surface decoration techniques, including stamp-making, slip-sponging, and slip-trailing
  • Demonstrations on throwing and altering
  • Discussions about studio ergonomics, timing, maintaining a sketch/idea book and idea-generation
  • One-on-one discussions
