The schedule for the summer of 2015 is now posted.  We are now accepting applications. We are only offering one workshop this summer.

Tracy working in the studio summer 05We offer one or two two-week long workshops every summer, devoted to throwing on the potters wheel, with emphasis on functional pottery.

Our aim is to provide a concentrated, supportive atmosphere for both those seeking an introduction to ceramics as well as more seasoned practitioners wanting to expand their skills and confidence.
