Program

Why exchange?? Exchange is the central theme. Exchange in conversation, learning process, exchange with another culture, and the internal exchange that happens as we develop our artwork. This is an opportunity to work with other artists, exchange ideas, develop new relationships, network, have new influences, experiment, and explore other aspects of creativity and ideas. For a group experience, there is the opportunity for creating memories, sharing inspirations, and the development of relationships.

The program is flexible,1 week to 3 months, with preference, and price-break, for longer stays. Groups are encouraged. The studio is fully equipped with 1 large high-fire electric kiln, wheels, tables, tools, underglazes, glaze making materials and a clear glaze. Other arts are accommodated, as there is space for painting, drawing, sculpture or other media. We can create a space for exhibition as work develops. Four clays are available to purchase prior to arrival, and all subsequent visits to suppliers can be arranged. All artists have available assistance in any area they need. Artists are free to work at their leisure.

Private lessons and individually designed courses are available for an additional charge. Clay is sold separately.
