Intensive Workshops  Contact me for details

In the intensive workshops students spend 2 or 3 days (9:30 am - 4:00 pm) in a row at the studio.  This provides a great opportunity to make more complex pieces and too really improve skills.  Then the students return a week  later to glaze and finish the bisqued pieces.

If you have a group of 4 or more students who would wish to do an intensive workshop please contact me to arrange an event tailored to the skills and interests of your group.
