There are still a few places left in Nick Joerling's class at Shakerag
Workshops, in Sewanee Tennesee, June 19-25, 2005. Nick's class, entitled
"Pots and Possibilities," will focus on altering utilitarian pots: beginning
with round pots coming from the wheel, Nick will show participants how to
push, cut, coax, and stretch those forms. The cost of the week-long workshop
is $550 which includes tuition and meals, and housing costs vary from
$125-$200 for the week.
Shakerag Workshops is a small workshop program, operating for only two weeks
in June, in which participants and faculty members live, eat, walk, swim,
and work together for a week on the Sewanee mountaintop. We emphasize good
meals, and we enjoy retreating from our ordinary worlds to focus on our art.
Each evening after dinner faculty members give slide/lectures, and our
studios are open through the evening so that participants can work, talk,
and enjoy one another's company. Our website,, has pictures
of our facilties and of our 2004 program, as well as more information about
our June 2005 workshops and on-line registration forms.
