This is an announcement/advertisement for my "Tricks of the Trade"
workshop at the Hill Country Arts Foundation, in Kerrville, Texas,
June 12 & 13, 2004.
Here's the workshop description:
This workshop is designed for people with experience working with clay,
who are interested in trying some new ideas and techniques. Over 25
years as a studio potter, David Hendley has developed many shortcuts
for getting the job done faster and better, as well as simple tools that
make it easier.
The emphasis will be on the functional vessel form. We will be working
on mugs, bowls, pitchers, and plates. Throwing on the potters wheel,
hand building, and extruding will be combined for much of the work.
Homemade tools play an important part in many of the “tricks”, so
demonstrations and instructions for making simple tools and using found
objects as tools will be scheduled during the day.
This will be a hands-on workshop. The Hill Country Arts Foundation has
a small but nice air conditioned ceramics studio, so the workshop will be
limited to 12 participants. The cost is $150.
For information or to register contact the Hill County Arts Association
at 800-459-4223, see the website http://www.hcaf.com, or send
an e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
For those not familiar with Texas geography, Kerrville is a beautiful town
in the heart of the Texas Hill Country, about an hour west of San Antonio
and an hour and a half southwest of Austin.

Since I ain't in Texas now, I won't be there. But anyone who
can be, should. David's workshops are a treat - he did one for
us while I was teaching in Texas, and the students absolutely loved
it. So did I. David has more information and experience than you
can cram onto a dish. AND - he has that slooooooooow, thoughtful
East Texas drawl, and a wry view of the world that is truly funny. I
mean humorous, not peculiar. Well, maybe a LITTLE peculiar,
but nobody's perfect.
