I have a friend, retired, who winters in Stuart, Florida. She has recently
taken up potting as a hobby; she is serious; she wants to do it well.
However, she can't seem to find a good teacher (she also has some insight,
admitting that it could be her, and not the teacher).

Does anyone know of a good teacher in or near Stuart, Florida?

Off-list replies would be fine. TIA

I took Stephen Jepson's two-week workshop in Geneva, FL (near Orlando) a
couple years ago and enjoyed it very much. He also offers a one-week option,
but I figured if I was coming all the way from SD, I'd do the longer
version. He's a good teacher, delivered what he promised, and made a big
difference in my throwing skills. You can find his advertisements in CM or
the Axner catalog. (He's got a photo of *me* in the ad, too! )
