Hi All -

I'm writing on behalf of the Arrowsmith Potters, the Nanaimo Potters Co-op,
and the Tozan Society (and me.....) -

We are SO pleased and chuffed to be able to tell you all that Dannon Rhudy
will be giving a workshop here at Malaspina College in Nanaimo. Dannon
needs no introduction to clayarters - she is one of the most warmly regarded
contributors to the list - her wealth of experience, and the clarity and wit
of her explanations, are a joy. We are looking forward with great pleasure
to this workshop, and are sure that any clayarters in the vicinity will get
here if they possibly can. Particularly - any of you in southwestern
British Columbia or northwestern Washington State should find it an easy
trip. Please note the dates, and try to join us if you can - it will be a
wonderful opportunity!

Date: Saturday, August 22nd and Sunday, August 23rd ('98)
Time: Right after lunch - we will be opening the Tozan noborigama in the
morning, and Dannon's workshop will start after that. Saturday evening
Dannon will give a slide show, and Sunday will be workshop again.
Cost: $60 (Canadian)
Registration: At the BC Potters' Guild on Granville Island at (604) 669 - 5645,
or on Vancouver island at 468-7072 (Les Crimp,Parksville/Qualicum,
753-4026 (Jan Jokinen, Nanaimo, ), or
246-1509 (Veronica Shelford, Thetis Island/Ladysmith, )

Also, if you are interested in taking part in the Tozan firing, get in touch
with Gari Whelan at - the expected dates begin with
the loading of the kiln on August 7th and 8th, firing in the week following,
cooling the week after that, and the opening on the 22nd.

Accomodation & Meals: Information will be available closer to the
time - check with one of the above contacts.

If you are interested, I have added a page to my website, giving some
background on Dannon, and a picture or two. This will also list the
registration information, for your reference. The address is

Will we see you there? Hope so! Please get in touch if you have any
