in June

We have a slightly different structure for our summer workshop offerings.
We are still offering five-day and weekend workshops, but we also are
presenting a three-week studio intensive with Suze Lindsay from June 14-Jul=
2. As you may know, Lindsay is one of the most dynamic potters in North
America today. She works on the wheel, but often uses the wheel to make
components for handbuilt work. She has a very original surface decoration
style, and she is famed as an excellent workshop teacher. If you want to
energize your work and find new avenues of creativity, you could not invest
your money better than by participating in this workshop. Please note that
the workshop will take place Monday through Friday for three weeks, with
full studio access including weekends.

Here's the information as it is given on our website at

Working in Series: Evolving Surface & Form - June 14 to July 2
Suze Lindsay
Fee: $1,800
Skill Level: Intermediate-Advanced
Materials Fee: TBA (optional, for brushes / handmade deer tail; priced
individually), payable to instructor

Students will bring one of their own pots to the session that they wish to
explore by developing in a series. The class will make changes in
relationships of function, form, surface, scale and design. Emphasis will b=
on working in sets and series as a process to promote expression and refine
continuity in form and surface.

Focus will be on decorative techniques using slips and glazes to stretch an=
expand personal imagery. Daily demos, slides of contemporary and historical
sources, and sketchbook exercises will enhance ideas for experimentation an=
play. Discussions and critiques will help each student discover and refine
essential themes in their personal work.

Suze Lindsay is a studio potter living and working in the North Carolina
mountains. Her background in education has led her to be an energetic
workshop instructor. She has taught in the U.S. and internationally.
