For potters who throw--someone came to my studio yesterday who would like to give a gift certificate to his girlfriend for a lesson or two on the wheel. Thinks she would like to learn to make bowls. I gently explained that there is a learning curve and it may take more than one or two sessions before she will become proficient, but he thinks she'd like to have the experience and currently is not in a position to take time for an extended series of classes. Please message or email ([email protected]) me if you might be wiling to do this or have any leads on who can. Not sure where she lives, but she works in the Saxapahaw area. Thanks! Cindy Biles ...

Thank you, Antje!

Cindy, That is so sweet the way you handled this.

My problem is lack of climate control. I could do this in the spring time but not winter.☹️
