looking for workshops in central us

Wendy Peck new on mon 29 jul 02


I have been happily lurking for several months now, drinking in the
knowledge from this list. Unlike when I joined, some of your words are
actually making sense now. I live in Canada, directly north of the MN/ND

By trade, I am a Web designer and author. By obsession, learning everything
I can about working with clay. My profession provides me with a lot of
freedom to travel, and I like to take workshops as I wander.

Problem: It's hard to find weekend workshops (or week-long if really good)
even with the Web to scout them out. Is there a US directory of workshops? I
spend most of my time in the center of the US, although I will travel just
about anywhere if the topic and setting is right. I've noticed a lot of
Canadians on the list, and would love to tap into Canadian listings as well,
though my wanderings usually take me south.

Specific problem: I am putting together an extended road trip in October. I
will be in Arkansas for a week, likely traveling through Missouri on the way
down. After Arkansas, I am likely heading south through Louisiana, to the
Gulf Coast in Alabama, and back through Indiana, Wisconsin, etc.

Does anyone know of any workshops anywhere close to this route in October? I
am so new that almost subject is appropriate, as long as it is beyond basic
building or firing. I am still finding "where I belong" in this
endless-possibilities craft. Specific focus, i.e., pit firing, altering
thrown work, surface decoration, etc, are my favourite. I am certainly
willing to go off my planned track by a significant number of miles if the
workshop warrants.

I appreciate any assistance you can offer.
