Good Afternoon!

I am very excited to be enrolled in a workshop next month at Touchstone
Center for Crafts in Farmington, PA. The instructor for the workshop is
Judith Duff from NC and is on the Glazed Surface. Believe me, I need some
help with glazing techniques! Anyway, the course needs just one more
registrant in order for it to =B3go=B2, so I am trying all means to spread the
word. If you know or have heard of Judy, you know she is an amazing potter=
a fabulous teacher, and an all around good soul!

Here is the workshop description:

decorating techniques such as pouring, dipping, layering, slip trailing, an=
wax resist will be covered.=A0 Students will mix glazes and be encouraged to
develop and experiment with new glazes. Bisqued pots that the students will
bring to class, test tiles, and pots the students make in the beginning of
