I have many students who take weekend workshops many times, building their skills from absolute beginners to advanced ceramics artists, developing their own style and artistic language over time.
We cover many different ways of working with clay during these fun-filled, information-packed two-day workshops.
Hand building, as I have found for myself, can be even more creative than throwing. I introduce many hand building skills.
I will have slabs of clay ready for you to work with. I will show you quick and easy ways of making mugs to teapots.
If you have never been on the wheel before I will get you throwing, working hands-on (literally) with you to throw pots. If you have been on the wheel before, I will watch you throw and trouble shoot everything from your ergonomics to your pace. I am happy to demo and teach anything you wish.
We will be imprinting clay, carving and painting. I will give lots of creative decorating and glazing demos. I have many coloured slips and underglazes to finish your forms with, and will instruct on how to use them.
We have a simple potluck luncheon each day, with each student providing something light to share. *Please let me know if you have any dietary needs*
I accept E-Transfer and credit cards.
*PLEASE CONTACT ME AT 250-538-7021 WITH ANY QUESTIONS.

Dear Adam, Several of the recent tax provisions in the NDP’s budget have significant negative impacts on your constituents and perhaps more importantly, on the long term economic health of this riding. Notably, the new “speculation” tax has significant economic implications for markets like Salt Spring, where it’s not uncommon for pre-retirement folks to buy […]
