terrible workshops need advice: an answer

I agree with Vince's general comments on "terrible workshops"--some of which
I have repeated below.

We would, I believe, be more helpful to the Clayart community to share
information on good or great workshops.

On July 21-22, I attended an Eric Struck workshop called "Throwing
L-A-R-G-E" at the FireArt ClayWorks in Orangevale, CA (just outside
Sacramento). It was a terrific workshop: Eric's explanations and
demonstrations have forever changed and enlarged (excuse the inadvertent
pun) my throwing. The workshop was hosted by Morgan Britt, who runs the
FireArt ClayWorks she can be reached at or by phoning (916)
988-9330. Check with her on future workshops and classes.

I have no affiliation with FireArt ClayWorks or with IMCO, where Eric is
manager of clay production.
