pottery workshops in holland - revisited

Hello again,

Last week I sent to Clayart a message about our pottery workshops in
Holland. Several Clayart members sent me questions about lodging costs and
other details. And Russel Fouts in Brussels told me that I should have
included information on where it is, what's being taught, who's teaching
it, etc.

Russel got my brain in gear. Instead of telling you that on request we will
put a brochure with info in the mail I should have put the information on
Internet. I corrected my omission, so all you want to know about the
pottery workshops in Holland can now be found at

In addition let me inform you that the workshop price of 535 guilders
(about US$ 290) includes lodging, meals, drinks and tuition. And that we
teach throwing and hand building; that the course is at a farm at 30
kilometers from Amsterdam and that it is taught by (my wife) Hanneke Oort
and by Susanne Gast. Both ladies are professional ceramists, and members of
the NVK (Dutch Potter's Association).

What is my own role? I help the cook, set the tables, do the dishes and may
play some music with you in the evening. Workshop details, plus pictures of
Hanneke, Susanne and their pots are at the Internet address mentioned
above. If you can read email but cannot surf Internet I can still send you
information by mail.
