My teaching philosophy involves helping people feel inspired and connected to their creative imaginations. I encourage them in a non-judgmental way, try to expose them to as many influences as possible, help them with specific techniques that apply to their ideas, and emphasize that mistakes can be very productive.
I teach occasional one or two day workshops from my Boston studio. Each has a different theme or project. I also teach workshops outside my studio at various places such as art centers, clay studios, or schools. These usually are more related to my personal work, with discussion of how I follow a path of ideas, how my personal philosophy and motivations have evolved over many years of working in clay, demonstrations of techniques I use in my own work, and a PowerPoint presentation showing work by other artists who approach the subject of nature in a different way than I do.
Please contact me if you are interested in taking a workshop, or if you have a venue where I could present a workshop. Here's a video of me working in the studio: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rvbWoOWIWUE
