Even Happier!

I can’t tell you how many months I have searched in vain for:
a) A place to fire my clay piece, and
b) Ceramic classes

I found a place in another town that would fire my piece for a price, but as it would have to go through the firing process twice (before and after glazing) it seemed a little expensive. Other places that I had tried, including my old school, failed to get back to me.

Then a couple of nights ago I stumbled across the adult learning section of our county council’s website. They hold 10 week ceramic courses (one evening a week) but they have just finished! Then, coincidentally, I came across another website that listed ceramic artists, and the tutor for the 10 week courses was on there with his email address! I emailed him, and he said that not only could he fire my piece for me, but that classes start again in September! Yippee! I found classes! I found classes! But it gets even better…

After the 10 week course starting in September, there is another 10 week course starting in January, and then another 10 week course starting after Easter! “For ever and ever” as the tutor put it! He doesn’t tell students what to make but he is obviously on hand to teach the students slab building, coiling, throwing and glazing. It sounds like just what I have been looking for! Yippee!

I can’t wait ‘til September!
