I don't know if Paul Lewing travels to the east coast, but if he does,
don't miss his tile workshop. He gave one at our community college
which I am sorry to say I missed. The students still talk about
his wealth of information and his very generous, direct, linear manner
of presentation. That was, I think, two years ago and several
no-longer-students are still working successfully and happily creating
and firing tiles. I'll not miss him if he wends our way again.

leave for some wending of her own from here to North Carolina, hoping to
salivate over pottery the whole way, thanks to Clayarters suggestions
for pottery sightings.

Jane Larson is on the East Coast, in the DC area. I took a work shop
from her 2 or three years ago. we made our tiles from low fire clay.
she had some really good ideas in forming tiles and avoiding warping
that really work (at least for me they do). I do not know her exact
address or if she is doing workshops. but there is bound to be someone
on clayart that has an address, or if you want, I could contact the
teacher that set up the workshop.
