In this one-day workshop at AMACO/brent on August 2, Julia Galloway and Sean O’Connell will focus on making and decorating functional ceramics. Each will incorporate a variety of decorating-techniques, as well as cover their own explorations in the relationship between surface and form. Both presenters have strong mark-making with their ceramic surfaces, and each will explain the thought-process of how their compositions are made on clay. Join us for this very fun one-day workshop!

As those of us who are working potters well know, the craft of pottery can be a very solitary form of creative expression. It’s tremendously easy to get lost in the world of clay and often times it’s difficult to know how to plug into our communities or the world at large. Lyndsay Meiklem, Potters Council Board Member, shares her experiences with social media in five article series published in Potters’ Pages.
No doubt Social Media has changed the way we do business, and let Lyndsay share her experiences with you. She will encourage you to try something new with social media.
