    Thank you Spring, That would be great, thanks. Feel a little pushy just joining the group without being invited. While I was looking it up I found the Berkeley Pottery Studio and have written this email to them, feel free to re-post: Hi there, I am going to be visiting SanFrancisco next month (21-25 July) and wouldlove to visit your pottery studio. I am an Australian potter of 18years, teacher for 5 of those. Alwayscurious to hear about other potters’ journeys and wonderedhow easy it will be for me to visit the studio by public transport from San Francisco. Would really appreciate your advice and inreturn, I’m happy to give a throwing workshop if that is somethingyour pottery studio would be interested in. This is my website and some otherreferences so you get an idea of my work. If it’s all too much work, I’ll just come say hi and havea chat. Thanks for your time, cheers Nicci www.niccijones.com | www.artsnw.com.au | niccipjones@gmail.com

    Thanks for all of that information, yes I realise it's all too short now.....it wasn't when i first asked though! Oh well, there have now been a few offers which I'll follow up on, something informal suits me just fine anyway. Cheers, Nicci

    Hi there oldlady!! I have only just realised the replies don't come through to my email address! So apologies for not responding earlier. I will have a look at other replies now and yes, I'm an old lady too (50!) Thanks for your advice, the problem is if you do a Google search they don't necessarily come up. I am more than happy to work in exchange for a room. Cheers Nicci being VERY old, 72, (but i am really only 11) i cannot use this computer worth beans so i do not understand at all what your last sentences mean..what is a google search in this regard? are you google searching people, places, replies? i would be happy to have you visit here, i am in harpers ferry wv, 60 miles west of washington DC., 250 miles or so from new york city. Sorry, if you do an online search for "American Pottery Studios" you don't always find people with their own independent studios, you'll find the big factories. If you don't know the names of the locals you can't search for them. And thanks for your offer! Will plot my map and my itinerary when I have a little more time and we can discuss in more detail with dates, possible workshops or demonstrations. Do you have a pottery studio etc? Nicci

    Thanks for that. I think I'll make it clearer and more straight forward now that I am finalising the details of my trip to any potters interested in having free labour for a few days in either San Francisco, Chicago, New York or Washington areas. My skills are throwing, surface decoration and sculpture. All I am interested in is sharing time and skills with other potters. Cheers Nicci

    Did you really need to ruin my day by calling a 50-y.o. person old? Geez! I'm not even in the country yet and I've offended another potter, sorry!!! In my defence I was actually making a seventy year old feel younger?? Nicci

  10. Aus potter in USA for workshop

    Hi, my name is Nicci Jones and I've been a potter for 19 years andTAFE (Technical and Further Education College) ceramic teacher for 5 years. I am travelling to the US in July-August andwondered if anyone had some advice or would be interested in me giving a shortpottery workshop in community colleges, art schools or working potteries orstudios. I'm in San Franciscofirst up from 21 July then across to New York until 3 August. I have given many workshops here in Oz butusually by request and I don't have any pottery contacts in America. With asimilar request through the Australian ceramic discussion list in 2009 I founda Spanish potter who was interested and I spent a memorable week in Spain withher at her studio making and talking pots in Spanish. I'm happy to provide the workshop delivery in exchange forboard/billeting, it's a fabulous way to get to know a culture, talk pots and ofcourse share skills and clay passions. If anyone wants to see my work you cansee it at www.niccijones.com and www.artsnw.com.au Thanks for any suggestions. Nicci
  11. Workshop Offer

    Hi, I've actually posted this on another forum topic but got no response as yet so will try my luck here! My name is Nicci and I am travelling to the US in July-August and wondered if anyone had some advice (or is interested in a visit from an Oz potter) or where to look to give short pottery workshops in community colleges, art schools or just helping out at a working pottery or studio. I'm in San Francisco first up from 21 July then across to New York until 3 August and have those weeks in between free so far and can travel accordingly. I have given many workshops here in Oz but usually by request and I don't have any pottery contacts in America.
