I love teaching and sharing knowledge with other clay enthusiasts! I specialize in printing-on-clay techniques, making underglaze transfers, glazes, glaze mixing and chemistry, and layering options for surface decorating. Other workshops I can offer include: thematic projects for groups and parties, Ocarina and Clay Whistles (including tuning clay instruments), Udu Drums, Relief Tile Making and Molding, and Byzantine-Style Mosaics.
