Third generation British potter Ara Cardew is coming back for another pottery workshop this year at Maho Bay Clayworks from February 7 through 12.
This workshop is open to beginning, intermediate or experienced potters by the day as well as the full five days. Cardew’s teaching schedule will be 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. daily. Everyone should bring their own lunch and breaks will be taken as needed. Additionally the studio will be open from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. to participants.
The workshop for one day only will be $75, which includes five pounds of clay per day and firing fees for that. Two or more days will be $65 per day.
The cost for full five days is $325, but only $300 for those with an active studio card. The five day workshop includes 25 pounds of clay and firing fees. It is recommended that those with little or no experience start February 7.
