Limited Attendance

Though I have taught workshops at Arrowmont, Haystack, Peter's Valley and Anderson Ranch, the pleasure of teaching here at my own home, in a kiln I have fired 26 times is very different.  I am also limiting registration to 7 participants.  This will ensure that everyone gets a healthy amount of work throughout the kiln, and everyone gets individual instruction.  I am dedicated to quality not quantity.


The cost for the workshop is $1,500.   I am dedicated to making this experience worth every penny.   Not only will participants get a lot of thier own work fired, but I will be providing invaluable instruction and two fun week of hard work in beautiful rural Wisconsin.  Wood, will be processed, and ready, glazes, slips, wadding and materials will be include.  Apprentices and I will be available the whole workshop to answer questions and insure students are getting questions answered.

“Simon was attentive and reassuring to all of us with regards to the firing process. He encouraged us to approach the firing with a sense of curiosity and relaxation. He built into the firing schedule some time for each of us to fire alone, which was initially intimidating, but ultimately a confidence booster and a pleasure. There were gems of wisdom to learn each day. It was a joy to spend time doing physical work within this team of potters and to meet Simon’s family. I came home with some new friendships and some of the best pots I have ever fired.”

Tales of a Red Clay Rambler

As a special treat we will be joined by Tales of a Red Clay Rambler's Ben Carter, who will be podcasting the workshop experience.   Ben is interested in documenting the firing and workshop for the Tales of a Red Clay Rambler podcast.  This is different than anything Ben has done before on his show, and it will be interesting to see what he comes up with.
