Wow!  I learned so much!  I guess I was just at the right place in my potting career to HEAR what he said and showed us and it ALL made so much sense!

We learned how to make our own tools!

We learned about throwing without water!

Malcolm's throwing is magic! Porcelain. No water. Just a dampened cotton cloth. Brilliant!

And MUCH, MUCH MORE!!

I’m so eager to try all the tricks of the trade that he shared with us!  He was super generous with ALL of his information!  No secrets with him!  We got it all.

If you get a chance to go, don’t hesitate!  It is awesome!  You will learn so much!

Upward and onward!

Luv,

Marian

    Oh, I’m so jealous! I found out about the workshop a day before and couldn’t make it down the coast to attend! Great post 🙂

    Making your own tools, or at least designing them so a wood worker can make them for you, adds that special touch to your pieces. It will make them uniquely yours.
    That does sound like a wonderful workshop.
