Kathy I really like the message you sent out about the Ron Meyers workshop.
Full of detail and my favorite part, for those not familiar with his work,
a link to sites with examples. I am constantly searching for this info when
a workshops comes up and wish others would include websites with their work
when announcing a workshop. Even our local guild just assumes everyone know
the potter on the flyer... NOT... For those giving a workshop this is just
great marketing drawing in those who may not know the person but might like
to. Wish it was closer. Looks like it could be a great event.
