As an arts educator I have always enjoyed sharing the knowledge and experience of clay with other people. I am currently doing this by teaching regular weekly classes and through virtual and in-person workshops.  If you are interested in having me give a demonstration or teach a class or workshop for your school or arts center, please reach out to me through my CONTACT page.
