There is only 1 space left in Vince Pitelka's Colored Clay workshop at my
studio in the beautiful San Juan Mountains of Ouray, CO Monday morning June
4th through Friday noon June 8th.

For people interested in learning all about colored clay, making it and
using it, I am bringing Vince to my studio in scenic SW Colorado on Monday,
June 4th through Friday June 8th. The price of $325 includes 50 pounds of ^6
clay, stains for the clay and lunches.

The workshop group will consist of no more than 7 participants, Vince and
me, and my studio equipment includes a large slab roller, 2 wheels, and an
electric kiln. There will be lots of opportunity for personalized
instruction with a group this size, and this workshop is designed for people
with some clay experience to very experienced clay people. Vince is a master
of colored clay!

Vince has some photos of his colored clay work and a full description of the
workshop at:

My studio is located in the beautiful San Juan mountains of SW Colorado, at
almost 9000 feet, just outside the city of Ouray. For information on Ouray
(pronounced You-Ray) check out: There's a
nice photo of the city in winter on their home page. My studio is located 2
1/2 miles outside the city. There are a lot of motels in Ouray ranging from
inexpensive and decent to expensive, and there are also several campgrounds.

For more information, please contact me:
My email address is:
I would be happy to telephone you, if you want.

Your check will hold your place in Vince's Colored Clay workshop.

This should be an excellent opportunity to enjoy the area, learn about
making colored clay loaves, learn to work with them, and spend time in a
small group. There is a nice, modestly priced hotel in town and there are
public and national forest campgrounds in the immediate area. I've seen the
work that other people have made in Vince's colored clay workshop, and I'm
looking forward to having him here.
