Want to workshop together? by Emily Schroeder Willis

I just back last week from a lovely time in Door County, Wisconsin. I did a workshop at the Peninsula School of Art with 5 FABULOUS attendees!  We had a blast making a ton of work together and enjoying the beautiful scenery around Lake Michigan.   If you would like to do a workshop with me, I am doing a workshop at Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts September 21-27.  Click here for info or to sign up.  Arrowmont is an incredible place to visit!

Also, I will be doing a shorter 2 day workshop at Rovin Ceramics in Ann Arbor, Michigan October 25 & 26.  Contact them at to get more information.

Here are a few of my favorite images from last week!

I have been holding off on posting anything about this until I had the final list of artists and bit more information about the Arrowmont Utilitarian Clay Conference this fall, but the cat is finally out of the bag!  Registration starts in a couple of weeks and it is limited to only 200 people, Wowza! That's not too many!

So sign up right away if you want to go.  Here's the crew of presenters (I am so excited to hang out with these artists for a week!):  Jen Allen · Nicholas Bivins · Blair Clemo · Sunshine Cobb · Molly Hatch · Bryan Hopkins · Brian Jones · Lindsay Oesterritter · Doug Peltzman · Peter Pinnell · Monica Ripley · Emily Schroeder Willis · Deborah Schwartzkopf · Kevin Snipes · Shawn Spangler · Shoko Teruyama · gwendolyn yoppolo 



Heading to Kentucky! by Emily Schroeder Willis

Centre College

Sorry to any readers for the ENORMOUS lapse in posts.  Things have been busy with expected and some unexpected interruptions.  I will be posting more (hopefully) in the next few weeks with more of the latest happenings.

For some exciting news, last week I was invited to do a workshop at Centre College in Kentucky.  I am really excited to be heading out there and to  meet some new folks!  I haven't ever been to Kentucky before, but last March, Matt and I visited Cincinnati (my first time) and it was beautiful!  I look forward to heading out that direction and hopefully inspire some art making in any budding new ceramicists.
