I'm just back from Pinecroft where we just had our first hands on workshop. What a great group of makers I had at this workshop. I teach them to make work that looks like mine. I teach the 3 i's as explained to me by Stoner Corner- initiate, and innovate. Make my work as best you can and then take the initiative to innovate and make the process your own. I was very pleased with the work the group produced. Some of the potters were old pros and some weekend warriors. What pleased me most of all were the results that could be seen by professional instruction.
