Francis Marion University, located in Florence, South Carolina, will be hosting
a workshop by Singapore potter Fong Choo. The workshop will be held Monday
evening, October 5th, from 6:00pm to 9:00pm in the Hyman Fine Arts Center, room
121. The workshop is free and open to the public. Parking is available behind
the Fine Arts Center, accessible from university entrance #6 off of Palmetto
(highway 76).

Mr. Choo has been selling and exhibiting his work at fairs and shows across the
United States and is currently the artist in residence at Bellarmine College in
Louisville, KY. In addition, Mr. Choo was selected by the Kentucky Arts and
Craft Foundation as the Master Potter for their upcoming Master Series

Mr. Choo will be demonstrating a variety of thrown porcelain and stoneware
forms, including his miniature teapots (about the size of an egg) made in the
Yxing tradition. He will also share his insight into the business/professional
side of potting. The evening will end with a slide presentation of his current
body of work.
