Hello everyone,

I=92d like to take the opportunity to advertise a workshop I=92m offering=
at=20
Anderson Ranch this summer- June 6-17. It is being advertised as a=20
Beginning class, but it is also a bit more than that. This class is for=20
potters who are just starting, or have been throwing for a while and are=20
interested in improving on basic skills. We=92ll work on such topics as=20
throwing and trimming, as well as more advanced skills like making a lid=20
that fits, a spout that pours, or a handle that feels (and looks) good.=20
In short, this class is designed to help you develop the skills=20
necessary to make that perfect pot you see in your mind (rather than the=20
imperfect one that appears on your wheel). It doesn=92t matter how long=20
you=92ve worked in clay, just that you want to learn and improve.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email me, or call me at=20
my office: (402) 472-4429.

Thanks,

Pete Pinnell

I highly recommend Pete's workshops! He is one of those rare glaze
wizards that makes wonderful forms too! So, even if this workshop is
focused on building, I am sure he'd be happy to talk to you about
glaze chemistry too.

If you can work things out, take advantage of this workshop. I've been i=
n 4
workshops with Pete and learned lots in each one. Pete is a fountain of
information and is very willing to share. It will be great!!! Pete has =
a
unique gift to reach all levels of potters at the same time. He explains
things clearly allowing beginners to understand what's going on but at th=
e
same time, challenges advanced potters. I was in a 1 week with Pete seve=
ral
years ago at Penland. There was a beginner in the class along with
professional potters who were there as students (Nick Joerling and Cynthi=
a
Bringle, for example). It was amazing to see him challenging the
professionals while making things really clear for the beginner. Don't m=
iss
this one. Patricia
