I've noticed that Jepson is hosting some decorating workshops like he did
earlier. I sort of wanted to attend the previous one, but the dates were =
for me. The dates of these are more fitting to my schedule but I'm =
wondering if
they are really worth the time and money. Have any of you folk gone to =
and how did it strike you?

I have Jepson's video on Advanced Throwing Techniques and although it had a =
of stuff on there, it fell way short of being completely infomative. I =
if hands on would be better?

Let me know what you thought of the workshops you attended there.

Jepson's throwing workshop is excellent. The decorating workshops were going
to be given by his brother-in-law, if I remember right. A very likable and
accomplished guy. Call out there and ask to talk to him--don't remember his
first name--Tom, I think. Unless Jepson has changed his approach, you'll be
decorating pieces which will not be fired. Technique is what is emphasized.
