Every spring and summer, I host workshops in my pottery studio in Nelson County, a beautiful spot overlooking the Rockfish River. Nelson County is a small rural county, about 150 miles southwest of Washington DC. The workshops are geared to working potters and serious students who want to focus on a specific aspect of making or firing pots.
As we did in 2012, Kevin Crowe and I will host two week-long workshops where participants will work three days in both my and Kevin’s studios. Kevin focuses on large scale pots and teabowls fired in a three chamber combination anagama-noborigama wood kiln. You can read about him at KevinCrowePottery.com. This workshop is an opportunity to experience Kevin’s and my distinctive approaches to throwing and surfacing. Between sessions you will have a day to experience Nelson County’s scenic wonders as well as our microbreweries and wineries.

Throwing intensive workshops here focus on specific projects that participants choose. We work together from 9:00 am to 5:00 pm, (with plenty of stops for food and demonstrations.) The studio is open as early and late as people care to stay. Enrollment is limited to eight students. The workshop fee covers all materials and food.
In addition to my studio workshops, I enjoy teaching at outside venues. I’ll be offering one-day demonstration workshops at The Kiln Doctor on May 11, and at the Potters Guild of Frederick in Maryland on June 15. I’ll be back at John C. Campbell Folk School in Brasstown, North Carolina in April of 2014. Please get in touch if you know of groups or venues where I might be able to teach. I love getting out into the world and sharing what I know about clay!
