Here are a couple of shots from the Thrown, Altered, Assembled workshop at Portland Pottery yesterday. I only hope the students had as great a time as I did! As I usually do, I demonstrated and talked for the first two hours, and then opened it up for students to try some of the shapes. And today I had a thought. I always like an interactive workshop, but maybe people would prefer to see/hear more from me, and then try the techniques in their own studios? I could easily fill three or four hours with demos. What do you think? I promise not to take it as criticism; I am just always looking for ways to improve the workshops, for next time.
I've created a poll, in the right hand column; or feel free to respond in the comments.
My friend Carolyn was diagnosed with inoperable cancer last year. She has been unable to work due to her illness - she owns her own hair salon. If you can help - any amount helps! - I hope you'll consider it. Click the photo to get to her GoFundMe page. Thanks.
