Barn Class with finished Pots

6 and 8 week Classes offered from Sept – May

For the local and regional community. These classes support an ongoing practice with the material as well as a sense of connectedness through community. In these classes, students learn hand-building techniques for making pottery and sculpture. Whether each individual focuses on sculpture or pottery is their own choice since fostering your creativity is my intention. To hear about openings in registration, please sign up for my “e-news”.

41st Annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show

November 9th-12th, 2017, Philadelphia Convention Center. The Philly Museum Show is one of the best places to see American Craft in all it’s gorgeous and wild permutations. Aside from ceramics, categories include: glass, jewelry, metals, wood, fiber wearables, mixed media. It’s a bounty and this show is a great place to see the flow of creativity in action. Please join me there and stop by for a hug (booth 704). It’s an intense, long show to do as a participant and I’ll need all the supportive hugs I can get :-). Visit their website HERE for more details.

Intro Retreat in The Work of Byron Katie

The Work (as it’s known) is Inquiry: a way to slow down and question the assumptions that underpin stress. Through Inquiry you learn what’s true and what’s illusion, thereby freeing yourself from attaching to thoughts that cause suffering. The Work is meditation. We don’t try to ‘let go of our thoughts’ . You’ve probably noticed they have a way of coming back over and over again. As Katie says “I don’t let go of my thoughts—I meet them with understanding. Then they let go of me.

Please join me in welcoming Tania Fierro, a gifted workshop presenter, certified facilitator and Chair Emeritus of the Institute for The Work. Tania will lead a weekend retreat on The Work on April 6th (6-9pm), 7th (9-5) and 8th (10-1). This is our 3rd year offering The Work retreat and it will take place at the James Lorah House in Doylestown. For more information about Tania, click HERE. If you have questions about the retreat or would like to register, contact me by clicking HERE.

2 or 3, Summer 2018, 5-Day Workshops will be offered here in Doylestown, PA.

2 Sculpture and 1 Pottery intensive will be announced in early 2018. Stay up to date by signing up for my “e-news”

Requests for Teaching Workshops in Your Area

After taking a yearlong sabbatical from traveling to teach, it’s plain to see that the flow of creativity is best served by focusing my teaching locally. This allows space for my own studio practice to be supported. That said, I will take offers to teach at a distance if they spark some sort of connection in me. If you’re interested in proposing a workshop, please be in touch.
