There is still room in the Brad Schwieger workshop which runs from Monday
June 9th through Friday June 13th. As many of you know, Brad conducts a
sensational workshop. His demos at last year's NCECA in Rochester were
excellent. In terms of aggressive thrown-and-altered vessels he is one of
the leading artists in the country today. This is a unique opportunity for
you to work with Brad in a small group in an excellent facility in beautiful
natural surroundings. The workshop is about $200 for the five days, and
room and board from Sunday evening through Friday afternoon is another $200.
All the housing units have kitchen facilities, and if you choose to cook for
yourself you can save quite a bit of money. If you have priced workshops
around the country, you know that this is an excellent deal.

Please email or phone me if you have any questions about this workshop. The
schedule for the rest of the summer workshops follows. Siglinda Scarpa's
tilemaking workshop is full, but all the others still have room.
