My company just revised our vacation policy, and all of a sudden I have 12
extra vacation days this year!!! So... I am frantically looking for 1-2
week workshops that still have openings. I am a handbuilder who is into
sculptural pieces (mostly abstract). I found a couple that interested me
at Penland, but they were already full (Yih-Wen Kuo & Keisuke Mizuno).
I then found the Oregon College of Art & Craft website with classes by Paul
Soldner & Lisa Wolkow (will call tomorrow to see if they're still
open). Anybody taken classes there?
Any other sculpture workshops that I may have overlooked? I'm really
interested in a personal growth experience more that a demo-type experience.
Thanks in advance!

You should look into George McCauley's workshop July 22-26 at the
Appalachian Center for Crafts. I've never taken his workshop, but I've met
him, and he's a great guy. Hopefully Vince Pitelka won't mind that I copied
the info below from his website:
Sculptural Work Using Thrown and Handbuilding Methods
During this class students will use thrown and handbuilding methods to make
sculptural work. Students will make pots and/or sculpture using personal
narrative, mythology, some life experience or story, etc., without regard to
function, although use can be a point of departure. Time permitting, some
work will be single-fired in a soda kiln.
