> Hi Folks,
> Some last minute cancellations due to family/health emergencies have
> opened up places in our summer week-long workshop at Laloba Ranch in
> Steamboat Springs Colorado.
> This is a special workshop experience in that it is a week-long
> intimate experience where we start with making the pots and then
> progress through a series comprehensive firing experiences.
> You would be firing the pots you make in all of the following
> techniques: Saggar Firing in a raku kiln, Ferric Chloride fuming on
> terra sig, 2 kinds of Naked Raku (Slip Resist and Slip and Glaze),
> Charlie's Layered Raku, Horsehair with and without ferric chloride.
> Plus Charlie's infamous throwing demos, making of terra sig, brush
> making and just plenty of horsing around.
> Lodging is on the premises, breakfast is "get your own" in the guest
> house, and gormet lunches and dinners are served everyday. The group
> eats together on an outdoor deck at the main house and spends the
> evenings socializing in the hot tub. Or for those that can't get
> enough of the clay the studio is open all hours.
> If you or someone you know would be interested you will need to
> contact Judy or Biz at Laloba ranch since we haven't a clue about
> their fees or registration process.
> Ranch Phone: 970-870-6423
> It would be great to see you there!
> Charlie and Linda
