Do you just want to get down to it?  Do you want to hone your skills?
Here on the west coast of British Columbia, you’ll join me in my studio, across from the ocean for a
2 day or 3 day workshop (10 – 4:30) each day.  You will spend concentrated time working through fundamentals and particulars of throwing on the potters wheel and or hand-building.
This is a process based workshop – so you will not be going home with any completed work, but you will be making making making – considering form, technique, altering & trimming.

Day 1,  you will concentrate on making work – throwing/hand building – depending on your desire.

On day 2, 3 we will be trimming work, discussing decorative applications and applying wet slip decoration and slip transfer decoration, mashima or inlay decoration,  and texturing decorating techniques on work made on day 1.

If you would choose to continue to work on throwing only, that is also completely possible.
I am happy to tailor a workshop to your specific needs and wants.

This is your time and we can work on specific areas that you are interested in ‘getting down’.

  • $247.50 / day  – regular price
  • $198.00  /day –  early bird special price if registered by August 31/16
  • 1 bag clay included
  • (additional clay, 30.00/bag)
  • Lunch included

If you are coming to Vancouver Island for the first time, you may want to schedule an extra day or two just to take in some of the beauty that I get to live with everyday.  Depending on the time of year, you may want to go whale watching, or hiking or take in a summertime music festival.
