dream workshop

My dream workshop would be conducted in our little pottery in Stonington,

Teaching it would be all the potters whose work I have seen recently, and
who I want to ask: "How did you do that?" (I am a real novice!)

The potters would tell the assembled group, (a maximum of six) their
techniques, and then show us, and then they would give us our favorite
pieces they had made in exchange for works we had made.

The students would promise not to steal the teachers' ideas, just to work
to incorporate them into our own work.

This would be free, of course, and the pottery studio would have a
skylight, and afterwards, we would all get together for a clambake.

Sounds great, no?
