If you plan to travel to the Blanding, Utah area in late September, you may want to join a special one-day ceramics event on Thursday, September 23, 2021, to precede this year's Southwest Kiln Conference. It's a one-afternoon workshop in ancient ceramics painting techniques hosted by Cherylene Caver and Tori Hoopes, both accomplished ceramics replicators.

Students will complete a bowl or mug with a design of their choice. Pieces will then be fired in the group kiln on Saturday morning. The 5 hours of instruction will include how to prepare organic paint, mineral based paint, how to make a yucca brush and tips on how to "pull a line", how to load a yucca brush, "getting into the flow", how to deal with mistakes, pros and cons of green vs. dried yucca leaf, as well as endless other tips!
